BEDFORD, Va. – The Bedford Fire Department showed its support for students struggling with bullying at school.

When they learned that a student in the community had been experiencing some issues with bullying, they wanted to make sure he knew he wasn’t alone.

Several members of the department ate lunch at a local school with the student and any others they saw sitting by themselves.

“It was a truly great experience for everyone,” the fire department shared on Facebook.

In the post, firefighters also shared an anti-bullying poster, including a website with resources for those struggling with bullying.
