Emergency Care Assistants James and Michael from North East Ambulance Service paid the squadron a visit to talk to the cadets and staff about the amazing work they do in their day to day job. They conducted a classroom session to talk to the cadets about the brilliant work they do and the kind of challenges they encounter on the road, and they brought an ambulance down to the squadron and gave the cadets a tour of everything inside, explaining how vitally important even the smallest piece of equipment is. They even allowed the cadets to put the blue lights and sirens on!
Cadet Cooper said ‘I enjoyed the Emergency Care Assistants coming down and talking to us, it’s a really good way to understand their job from their side of the situations. It was also good being shown their equipment and imagining scenarios that they could be used in’
1338 Seaham Squadron extends their thanks to NEAS and to James and Michael for giving up their time to visit our squadron and provide such a fantastic and informative evening.
