Pounce the Paramedic is the brainchild of Bryan Hylton. Bryan conceived and designed Pounce to be the cornerstone for an educational program aimed at children. Pounce serves to educate children about Emergency Medical Services and answers any fears a child may have through a fun, interactive presentation. During the presentation, Pounce’s team gives out coloring books and invites each child to participate in a coloring competition. The winner receives a free Pounce t-shirt.
Pounce makes appearances in many of the area schools, parades, and public gatherings, each time he is greeted with a group of smiling kids. We are currently developing “Pounce’s Junior Paramedic Program” that will continue to teach children about Emergency Medical Services, reinforce good manners, and have its own interactive website. Children can visit the web site to learn more about Pounce and download fun activities. Watch this page for future details on this exciting program.
Teachers who are interested in having Pounce visit their school can email POUNCE at Operations@BESTAMBULANCE.ORG for more information.
