ER24 paramedics visited the Milnerton Pre Primary School this morning.
Paramedics were met with smiling faces as the children grouped on the school yard to see the demonstration. Paramedics then explained the importance of holding an accompanying adults hand while crossing the road or walking close to traffic.
The children then learned the ER24 emergency number 084 124. A demonstration was given on what the paramedics do if someone is struck by a motor vehicle and a brave child volunteered to be immobilised on spinal equipment.
The children then had the opportunity to walk through the ambulance before returning to class now knowing that should a medical emergency arise that ER24 would be at the ready with real help real fast.
