Emergency Helpers - Early Childhood Emergency Program

Emergency Helpers - Early Childhood Emergency Program

For emergency services, such as NSW Police Force, the safety and well-being of the community is paramount. As the leading law enforcement agency in NSW, police are tasked with investigating and preventing crime to ensure the safety of all community members. The Ambulance Service of NSW, in consultation with NSW Police Force and NSW Fire Brigade have developed a free electronic Emergency Helpers Program to assist you in the education of children between 3-5 years.

It is important that children are educated to understand what to do in an emergency situation and how to seek help in an emergency. The Emergency Helpers Program aims to prepare younger children for emergency situations, and educate them in a safe, non-threatening learning environment.

The Program teaches children:

  1. How to identify an emergency service worker
