StrongStart was very exciting this morning!
A paramedic named Jason brought an ambulance to the school so we could
climb inside and look around.
We stayed busy playing while we waited and when it arrived we couldn't wait
to get outside and see it.
We took turns looking inside.
Entering through the side door we saw the big stretcher and lots of
cupboards with glass doors.
The glass doors made it easy to see the bandages and materials the
paramedics use to help people.
Jason invited us to sit on the long bench and tell him about any
experiences we have had in ambulances.
Luckily there were very few.
One family told us their story about when their grandmother went in an
ambulance to the hospital. Before she left, the paramedics gave the children
teddy bears and it helped them feel more positive about the experience.
We climbed out and said thank you to Jason for coming all the way
to our school.
Before he left he turned on the lights and the siren.
It was awesome!
