Safety Education: PPS Celebrates National EMS Week

Colchester Rescue helped Porters Point School celebrate National EMS Week on May 22.

PPS students toured an ambulance and learned about the equipment the EMTs use and the work they do. The event gave the students the important hands-on opportunity to learn about basic safety practices that will serve them throughout their lives. The event was coordinated by PPS’s Fred Moses.

Professionals in emergency medical services provide acute medical care and transport for patients of vastly varying injuries and illnesses, and National EMS Week offers a chance for community members and their emergency medical personnel to connect in a non-emergency environment, encouraging learning and rapport development. And because part of Colchester Rescue’s mission is to prevent illness and injury through public education, the May 22 event was an excellent collaborative endeavor.

Colchester Rescue also participated in the May 11 career carnival at Colchester Middle School. It was the second year in a row that Colchester Rescue supported our students in that career event.

Many, many thanks to Colchester Rescue for its support of our students!
