SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Residents in Springfield Township and the Village of Holland will soon have information on how to handle a practical emergency.

Springfield Township Assistant Fire Chief Rick Helminski said last year's wind storm really rocked the area. Now, members of the fire department, high school students, and the Village of Holland have partnered with local businesses to create an emergency procedures guide.

"We needed a tool to provide to the citizens," Helminski said. "So citizens can prepare themselves for events that are identified in this flip chart, and then also in the event of something happening, it shows them how to respond."

Springfield High School students with the group "Students in Action" took their day off to volunteer to put the packets together. The students said giving back to the community and keeping their neighbors safe are their main goals.

"This is just one of the many things we do," said Springfield Senior Carolyn Manley. "We had about 200 students sign up to help out today. Instead of staying home and sleeping, they came to, you know, keep their community safe."

Impact America developed the emergency procedure guides. Students who participated will hand deliver them to residents starting Wednesday.
