Some children in Richmond learned what happens after an accident Tuesday.

And the safety lessons didn't come from a textbook.

The Richmond Fire Department, Police and EMS all took part in an accident drill as part of the Police Department's Summer Camp for children.

The kids even got to play the role of first responders.

Beatrice Parks says, "I learned how to be careful next time and watch out for the traffic. And just look both ways."

Kooby Jackson is also enjoying the camp and says, "I learned how an accident happens. Then you get the police. And the fire department tries to cut open the door and tries getting at the patient. And the ems comes and gets the patient in an ambulance."

This is the fifth year the Richmond Police Camp For Kids.
