Kindergartners and first-graders recently met emergency medical technicians from Saint Clare’s Health, the hospital and health care system that serves Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties.

With their patient, Boo Boo Bear, the EMTs familiarized students with the sights, sounds, and personnel they might experience in an emergency. The students peeked into a Saint Clare’s ambulance to see the equipment and then, wearing surgical masks and latex gloves, used plastic stethoscopes to check out their own stuffed animal patients. The EMTs helped the children patch-up their patients with band-aids and other supplies.

“This was a fun way to show students what paramedics do and familiarize them with the medical equipment and materials they might see if they’re ever in a situation where they need emergency help,” said Brittany Van Houten, kindergarten teacher.

School nurse Geri-Lynn Sullivan arranged the EMT visits.
