Ambulance call handlers have been visiting schools in Essex to teach youngsters about calling 999.
The team of 15 dispatchers from the Chelmsford control room play themed games with year one pupils, talking them through when to call 999 and what will happen if they do.
Call handler Alison Latham set up the project.
Alice Clarke, a teacher at Queen Boudica Primary, Colchester, said: “Our classes really enjoyed the presentation and loved the ambulance colouring sheets.”
