Safety and Injury Prevention for Children

BUFFALO, NEW YORK; July 11, 2006: "Camp 9-1-1" is designed to provide children, ages 10 through 13, with an introduction to emergency medical services, emphasizing safety, injury prevention, bystander care, learning, and fun, through an enjoyable interactive program.

A "Camp 9-1-1" highlight is a Recreational Vehicle (RV), provided by "J-Fire," set up like a house filled with safety hazards that children have to identify. They must also develop exit plans and escape from the RV when it fills with smoke. Other interactive learning opportunities include: Vehicle Rollover Demonstrations, by the New York State Police Department, to show children what happens in an accident when vehicle occupants do not wear seatbelts; trained "police dog" demonstrations using animals trained for the Erie County Sheriff's Department by Owen Tober-Amstel Kennels; Children touring the ECMC Emergency Department, rooftop helipad with Mercy Flight helicopter; Children learning/practicing CPR, bystander care, and touring a Rural Metro ambulance; A pathology station showing the effects of smoking on human organs and learning about DNA; the FBI on Internet Safety, a frank discussion with children about making the right choices when using the computer; and children competing in safety obstacle course.

Camp 9-1-1 is sponsored by the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Department of Emergency Medicine. Funding for the Camps is provided by the Center for Transportation Injury Research (CenTIR).

Interest in the "Camps" has been growing each year for the past 7 years. The Camps run each Camp day from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. and are offered free of charge for those children who have been pre-registered. For more information about "Camp 9-1-1" for 2006, those interested should contact camp coordinator Cara Raczka at 898-3478.
