South Seneca Ambulance presentation in Ovid

Students from South Seneca Elementary School recently celebrated National Emergency Medical Services Week by learning about safety and emergency response protocol.Members of the South Seneca Volunteer Ambulance Corps met with students to discuss their job responsibilities and answer any questions posed by the students. The paramedics and emergency medical technicians explained the importance of calling 911 immediately and they also talked about what happens when an emergency call is made to the 911 center.“This is a great way to bring about awareness for our profession and show the kids some of the equipment that we use on a daily basis,” said Amanda Reed, a member of the ambulance crew. “By talking to them and showing them this equipment now, we hope they will be less scared if they see these things in an actual emergency.”After learning about the tools of the trade, students had a chance to sit in the ambulance and explore the different monitors inside. They also received bags with informational materials to promote safety.
