In an attempt to build a brighter future for our youth, Cataldo Ambulance Service is now bringing educational offerings designed to demonstrate health and safety information to elementary school children throughout the Greater Boston Area. As part of Cataldo’s youth education programs, we have launched a new educational initiative teachings elementary school students the basics of EMS, 9-1-1 and first aid and safety.
Cataldo’s Kids 1st Program is a community based program which targets fourth and fifth grade students with the Atlantic and Cataldo service area (Malden, Everett, Chelsea, Saugus, Somerville, Peabody, Lynn, Melrose, Revere, Salem and Marblehead). Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) teach students emergency first aid and prevention, as well as how to treat typical injuries kids may encounter. Elementary students also have the opportunity to explore the inside of an ambulance, to ask questions about the vehicle and to touch and test important pieces of equipment used daily. Students will become familiar with EMTs and Paramedics in this relaxed forum which encourages children and teachers to interact with their instructors.
Cataldo Ambulance Service F.A.C.E Program
As part of our Youth Education Initiatives, Cataldo Ambulance has partnered with the Citizens School Apprenticeship Programs to create the F.A.C.E. Program (First Aid & Childcare Education). This apprenticeship teaches middle school students how to care for others and what to do in the case of a medical emergency. A full curriculum has been developed to host a 12 week program which combines important lessons such as first aid, CPR, the Heimlich maneuver and basic childcare guidelines.
Cardiac Survival Project
The Cardiac Survival Project is a collaborative effort between Cataldo Ambulance Service and community-based public service groups. This project is aimed at reducing the number of lives lost to cardiac arrest and heart disease through aggressive CPR education throughout the eleven communities Cataldo Ambulance provides 9-1-1 services.
Alcohol Awareness Program
American Cancer Society
Cataldo Ambulance Service understands the importance of medical research, and we take great pride in lending a helping hand. We participate in the following American Cancer Society (ACS) fundraisers each year. We also host an annual golf tournament and the proceeds are donated to the research efforts of the ACS.
Toy Drive Helps Families in Need
Each December Cataldo Ambulance Service works with the Somerville Housing Authority to collect toys to be donated to the local Toys for Tots.
The toy drive, held at the Kmart in the Assembly Square Mall in Somerville,
proves to be successful each year. An ambulance is stationed outside
of the retail store each year to generate interest.
