Rolling along

The Northville Township Public Safety Department had a temporary recruit last week when Alyssa Benvenuti, a graduate student at Madonna University joined both the police and fire department for 12-hour shifts including a ride-along. She completed the first-hand experience as part of her class program and rode for 12-hours with the Northville Township Fire Department and another with the Northville Township Police Department.
Benvenuti is pursuing her degree in nutrition at the college and said she gained valuable insights through these experiences into the physical demands of public safety jobs, observing how first-responders integrate hydration and nutrition into their daily routines. Benvenuti has crafted a comprehensive plan for both departments to optimize their dietary habits, aiming to boost their energy levels throughout the day as part of her classwork.
