Today at Crayons we are featuring the Emergency Management Engineers who provide advice and guidance to our Emergency Services! Whilst the Engineers featured are based in NSW no doubt there are their equivalents in all the other states of Australia :-)
Australia really is a land of extremes. At times there can be bushfires, drought, earthquakes, landslides, natural or accidental disasters and extremely wild weather that require the help of the great Emergency Services people - Police, Firefighters and Ambulances - who come to our aid. The Emergency Management Engineers are the folk that provide professional assessments and assistance in the most dangerous of situations as well as the cleaning up dangerous chemicals or spillages in the aftermath of a major emergency.
Another task these well trained engineers undertake is the search and rescue of victims of major structural collapses and their professionalism often finds them providing assistance to other countries around the world. Engineering really is cool!
To help educate children about the Emergency Services, Crayons has the Emergency 000 Collection which features a variety of Emergency Services activities and toys for young heroes to play with :-)
The Pinterest site Learning Roof has some great Emergency Fire Services activities for children to do and we love the Firefighter songs!
