Positively impact the child(ren), family and EMS professional each time the ped bag is used.
Tremendous PR opportunity to increase club membership and increase awareness of your club in the community!
Create lasting relationships with your EMS / fire departments, EMSC, businesses, other volunteer organizations, and community.
Contribute to GFWC-WI’s EMSC pediatric bags for ambulances goal!
Good luck and thank you for working on this life saving project!
Meet and discuss the project with your club. Will you work on EMSC as an individual club, in combination with another club, or as a District? How many EMS departments do you want to impact? Discuss ways to raise funds.
Think about PR opportunities and use them. (OJWC was able to use the media blitz with phone calls to new residents to more than double their membership).
Decide when to approach your chosen EMS department(s). Who is the contact person? Are they willing? How many ambulances do they have and what level of EMS? (See Sample Call to EMS).
Please feel free to call / email any of us for help.
And please keep the EMSC committee updated with which departments you are working with (in case of duplication and for tracking purposes).
