Last weekend, the management of PLAYCREATION, hosted a children’s fun day, in the parking lot of the LimeGrove Lifestyle Centre, featuring members of the emergency services and business community.
Members of the Royal Barbados Police Force’s Traffic Division, including personnel from the motorcycle corps, Barbados Fire Service and the Roving Response Team teamed up with Crane and Equipment Ltd., which set up one of its heavy duty lifting cranes, as well as Suntours Limited and Rayside Construction to treat the youngsters.
Motor cycling enthusiast Jeremy Stephen added some thrills, much to the delight of the children.
Parents were encouraged to allow their children to climb into the truck and the Bobcat tractor, sit on the police motorcycle, get behind the wheel of a real police car, examine and touch every part of the fire truck on display, enjoy the luxury of the tour bus, and turn on all of the sirens and lights of the emergency responders.
The children also benefitted from the first aid displays, demonstrations of rescue gear and first aid equipment of the Roving Response Team. One Roving Team member even went the extra mile by demonstrating how a rescue and safety harness is used and was hoisted high into the air by the crane to complete the show.
Nelika Watson of PLAYCREATION said the event was one of many being planned for children, and thanked all of the participants. She described last weekend’s event as a great success.
