An ambulance in school

In school, we are looking at Safety Week and we had an extra special treat to kick off the week.

Donald from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service came to school with his ambulance to help us to learn how to keep safe.


Donald told us all about the special uniform that he has to wear and how it keeps him safe.

Then it was our turn to go and explore the ambulance.


It was different to how we imagined it was as many of us had never been in an ambulance before. If it was a real-life emergency, Donald would have taken us to the hospital to make sure that we were ok.

We were able to ask questions to find out more about the ambulance.

  • How fast can an ambulance travel?
  • Does the ambulance make a noise?
  • Who looks after you on an ambulance?

Donald was able to answer all of our questions and he even let us listen to the siren on the ambulance. It was very loud and it would make us get out of the way in an emergency.


We had a brilliant time today. Thank you Donald.

Keep your eyes peeled on the blog for other safety week activities.
