Backus Safety Camp 2013

There were plenty of emergency vehicles including the LIFE STAR helicopter in the Backus parking lot Saturday, May 18, but there was no emergency. They were all there as part of Backus Safety Camp 2013, an event organized by the Backus Trauma and EMS Departments and American Ambulance. Emergency services from throughout the region were there to provide educational demonstrations on safety. Children toured emergency vehicles and learned how they work. Safety Camp gives children and their families an opportunity to learn about safety in a fun environment. Watch this audio slideshow to view some images from the event.
