HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Loud sirens and big trucks zooming through highways and neighborhood streets can be a scary sight for little eyes and ears, especially at night.

To ease those fears EMS officials visited St. Marianne Cope Preschool on the St. Francis School campus on Friday to give them an insider’s access to the city’s emergency responders and their operations.

EMS communications director Shayne Enright gave the preschoolers a hands-on experience by allowing them to try on protective gloves, feel hot and cold packs, lift the heavy paramedics’ kit and sit in an ambulance.

One little boy even got his head bandaged.

By the end of the visit the keiki were excited to see the flashing lights of the ambulance and hear the ear-splitting blast of the siren.

Now, these keiki will never forget the three letters, E-M-S.
