I live next door to a 911 operator and I just have to say that I have become so very impressed with how many kids who call 911 have been able to help their loved-ones and in some cases, save lives. When I saw this upcoming event I thought it would be perfect to share with families and ask you to spread the word!
Who: In honor of National Emergency Medical Services Week, Rural/Metro Ambulance will be hosting a Teddy Bear Clinic at Westfield Mission Valley to teach children and families about calling 911, providing tours of ambulances and conducting demonstrations of ambulance equipment. Children are encouraged to take their teddy bears and dolls to participate in the demonstrations!
What: EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s front line. Rural/Metro is hosting numerous events throughout the week to honor San Diego’s first responders. For more information, please visit www.RuralMetroSanDiego.com.
