Launched in 2010, MAU Community Outreach is our public education branch. MAU-CO goes out into the communities that we serve to connect with the residents and teach them about EMS and what we do. Our program start at the youngest levels teaching school aged children what the Emergency Medical Service is and what an Emergency Medical Technician does. The program involves a "classroom" style presentation and tours of an MAU ambulance and even our Walnut Street Headquarters.
MAU-CO also takes the lead for our EMS Week events. Events in the past have included, blood pressure screenings, open house tours of our Headquarters and special events with local youth organizations. Another popular service is attendance at school aged children parties where the kids have the opportunity to have an ambulance present at their birthday party and receive a tour of the ambulance, a brief safety talk or message of importance.
MAU-CO also offers educational opportunities for individuals, families, Scout Troops and local businesses. MAU-CO offers First Aid and CPR classes, as well as, emergency preparedness classes. For more information on Community Outreach programs, please contact Deputy Chief Kendall by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MAU-CO Offers a plethora of classes certified by both the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI). Contact us today to assist with planning for your training.
