Beds staff head back to school

Bedfordshire students were given an insight into the work we do during two school visits by members of staff.

Last month, Emergency Care Assistant, Gareth Mattin visited Roxton Lower School in north Bedforshire and spoke to 70 children, aged from 4-11, about and how to make a 999 phone call, the types of incidents that an ambulance should be called for and examples of what not to call an ambulance for. 

Also in Bedford, Dispatch Team Leader, Craig Borrett and Dispatcher Riyad Muhammad visited Greys Primary School in Bromham to talk to pupils about calling an ambulance, hoax calls and a tour around an equipped RRV. Craig also returned to the school the next day to discuss how the 999 call process works with the school’s teaching staff.

Craig added: “They just wanted to discuss how the 999 call process works and look at CAD markers in case they need to call for a member of staff again who has a potentially life threatening condition, which may not be picked up with our current triage system.  This will then support them in forming their own risk assessment for their staff.

“Thanks again to Rusell Dilley, DLO Kempston for sorting an RRV for the visit today.”
