Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps Open House Saturday, April 21
Last Sunday’s CPR class of Roaring Brook moms at CVAC
Monday, April 16, 2012
Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corp (CVAC) will hold its first-ever community-wide Open House for New Castle residents. This fun-filled family event will help community members get a better understanding of what goes on behind the scenes at CVAC. Last week, CVAC’s ambulance and crew members made a bee-line to eight homes in New Castle, treating children, adults and seniors for stroke, chest pain, abdominal pain, respiratory illness, head injury, snycopy (that’s fainting) and general illness. They also responded to a fire call to “stand by” for injuries.
Your kids won’t want to miss the Ambulance tours and an up close look at all of the EMT equipment.
WHEN: Saturday, April 21, 10:00-2:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
WHERE: CVAC Headquarters at 233 N. Greeley Ave, Chappaqua. (head north out of town, we’re past the post office)
WHY: This is a great way for community members to gather and learn about what’s involved in joining the Ambulance Corps:
- flexible hours
- no medical training required - we provide all needed training
- great way to build some important life skills
- great way to meet a terrific group of people
