Ambulance in the community

It is important that every person understands how and when to call for emergency services, regardless of age.

It is often the case that children are responsible for dialling Triple Zero (000) in an emergency and become solely responsible for directing the ambulance.

Our activities are designed to build confidence in children to make that call that could save a life, the key learning points include:

  • how to make a Triple Zero (000) call
  • differentiating between ‘big’ and ‘small’ accidents
  • requesting the right emergency service
  • the importance of knowing your home address
