On August 24, 2010, ECMC held the first of two (2) Camp 9-1-1" events scheduled for 2010.  The popular "Camp 9-1-1" is designed to provide children, ages 10 through 13, with an introduction to emergency medical services.  The camp emphasizes safety, injury prevention, bystander care, learning and fun through an enjoyable interactive program. 

Child learning opportunities for this year include: gaining knowledge about performing adult and infant CPR; practicing basic first aid skills and bystander care; receiving Internet safety through an FBI instructor; touring the ECMC Emergency Department to see EMS professionals in action; touring the ECMC rooftop helipad and Mercyflight helicopter; receiving animal safety care and instruction from Lancaster Small Animal Hospital staff; observing police dogs in training; watching a vehicle rollover demonstration; seeing a Rural Metro Ambulance demonstration on patient care and safety; gaining valuable health care career information. 

Camp 9-1-1 is funded by the Emergency Department Physician Group (University Emergency Medical Services) and the Erie County Medical Center.  Interest in the "Camps" has been growing each year for the past ten years.  A second 2010 Camp was scheduled for August 25th.  The day camp is 6.75 hours in duration, from 9:00 A.M. to 3:45 P.M, including on-site registration.  The Camps are offered free of charge for those children who have been pre-registered.  For more information about 2011 camps, those interested should contact camp coordinator Cara Burton at 716-898-3525.
