The Wyckoff Volunteer Ambulance Corps' Community Education Program offers fun and educational presentations to any group. We offer basic information about how to respond to an emergency situation, provide demonstrations of equipment and techniques that we use in our day-to-day operations, and offer guided tours of our building and our ambulances. We have presented to numerous Boy Scout, Girl Scout, Weeblo, and Brownie troops, as well as a yearly appearance at Wyckoff's annual Safety Town program, and are able to tailor our presentations to match any curriculum needed for certification, merit badges, or just plain curiosity. Our presentations are given by active members of the Wyckoff Volunteer Ambulance Corps, with real life experience in emergency situations and plenty of stories and examples to keep a group entertained. Our upstairs training room is perfect for group presentations, with air-conditioning, a built in Bose sound system, tables, chairs, plenty of open space, and a built in projector, screen, and AV technology and interface.
These sessions are not just an ambulance corps member standing in front of the room and telling your group about what we do. Questions are invited and encouraged, and often shape the direction of the presentations. Our presentations often become hands on, as we ask for volunteers from the group to help us demonstrate equipment and techniques. You might find yourself or one of your group members secured to a backboard, lying on the stretcher, or demonstrating how to assist a "choking" ambulance corps member!
We'd love you to come visit us at our Voorhis Ave location behind Wyckoff's Town Hall, but we are also happy to bring out educational presentations right to your doorstep! We have run several on-site presentations, including bringing an ambulance for walk-throughs and demonstrations and running simulated emergency situations to give you and your group a better feel for what the Wyckoff Volunteer Ambulance Corps is all about!
