At the South Walton Fire District, another new group of Daises and Brownies, Troop 503, are touring the station to earn their "Respect Authorities" petal. The girls were full of questions while learning about the innards of the fire truck and touring the living quarters of the station.

Warren decided to become a leader for Troop 503 as a way to spend quality time with her daughter, Gavrielle, while also serving the community.
