Paramedic goes to school

A West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic spent Saturday showing children at a Worcestershire Primary school around an ambulance.

Alison Vinson was at Pitmaston Primary School in Worcester where last year with the help of the Redditch Heartsafe charity she delivered a defibrillator and taught staff how to use it.

On Saturday the school held its fete and Alison was there, along with police and the fire service.

Alison said: “The kids loved it! We had some of them immobilised on a scoop stretcher and I let some of the children help put the straps on.”
