Shortly after 09:00 this morning ER24 paramedics visited the; On the Corner Day Care in Parow for a demonstration.
The children were exited as the ambulance came around the corner with its lights on. Paramedics were met with smiling faces and numerous questions and stories of past confrontations with lights and sirens.
The paramedics then gave the children a talk on the importance of exercising safety when crossing the road and to always hold the hand of an accompanying adult. After the talk a demonstration was given in which a young girl volunteered to be immobilised to a special board.
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.
