Every year throughout October, the Welsh Ambulance Service visit schools up and down the country to promote Shoctober. An annual campaign aimed at Primary schools to promote appropriate use of 999 and life-saving skills. This year is our 5th Shoctober anniversary however, as a result of Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve had to think differently about ways we can still promote these key messages in a safe way.
I believe we have come up with something special, and am proud to present an animation which sees our Trust mascot’s Jack & Kim come alive. The animation, which is approximately 5 minutes long, see’s Catrin, age 9 a big sister to Abi, who is 4 years old and Deaf, learn about 999 emergency and how to do CPR safely (considering COVID safety measures). The animation is available in English, Welsh and British Sign Language (BSL)
We would be extremely grateful if you could share this animation to promote this vital information.Tweet
