Natalie Sokolov of Edison, Robert Dorsey of Colonia, Amelie Leu of Metuchen, Hannah Yin of Scotch Plains and Zara Zaidi of Edison, students at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, participate in a safety exercise presented by The Sambulance Safety Squad. The Sambulance, sponsored by Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor and Outdoor Water Park, is an ambulance wrapped in fun colors and design, used as part of the program to introduce children to an ambulance, the first responders who operate them, and the various tools inside, such as oxygen units and back boards. The Sambulance Safety Squad offers educational programming for schools and community groups designed to educate students about safety awareness, emergency situations, first aid, and water safety. Grades 1 and 2 participated in programs dealing with “stranger danger” and safety awareness. Grades 3 and 4 had programs dealing with emergency situations and first aid. At the conclusion of each program, the students were given a tour of the ambulance.
