The Keas, Cubs and Scouts at Iona Scouting Group had both the police and ambulance services visit this month. With such exciting ‘day jobs’ it’s no surprise that these emergency service professionals grabbed the scouts’ attention from the moment they arrived.
The police allowed the children to sit on their motorcycles and activate the flashing lights in the car park, and then answered questions about their job. Of particular interest to the group was handcuffs, guns and tasers.
Then it was the turn of the ambulance service, who taught the children some basic first aid. It was a lot of fun bandaging up one another, but the highlight of their visit was climbing aboard the ambulance and being told about all the weird and wonderful equipment inside.
Thank you emergency services for the important work you do. Our Keas, Cubs, and Scouts loved that you took the time to visit, and you never know the impact that visits like these have on impressionable young minds.
