Emergency services take it to the kids
As part of StormSafe Week, Longford Primary School children enjoyed an Emergency Services Day.
Loch Sport SES, Sale and Longford CFA and St John’s Ambulance provided a variety of activities designed to help the kids learn how to cope with emergencies.
East Region Community Resilience Coordinator Louise van Deelen ran a Triple Zero and 132 500 activity where kids learnt how to make emergency calls.
Loch Sport SES talked to the kids about what SES volunteers do. The Unit also ran a Home Emergency Kit Relay Race that really got everyone moving.
CFA provided a tour of the truck plus a Home Fire Safety lesson and the wonderful Smoke House that demonstrates the importance of crawling low in smoke in a house fire.
St John’s brought their community ambulance and a range of first aid equipment including a working oxygen mask.
A variety of round robin activities provided the children a really solid educational experience that teachers can build on back in the classroom.
