Arrives Thursday, June 19 at 10:30am.
"Guilford County Commissioners have donated an out-of-service ambulance and equipment to the Greensboro Children’s Museum for use in their “Get Out and Play” interactive exhibit which features full size automobiles. The ambulance will join other city vehicles, including a fire truck and a police car. The exhibit also has a Volvo truck and Petty Enterprises racecar.
“We are excited to welcome the ambulance as the newest exhibit addition to the Museum,” said Marian King, CEO of the Greensboro Children’s Museum. “Having the ambulance will allow children of all ages to use their imaginations to become a community helper for a day and help them get a glimpse of a day in the life of an EMT.”
A non-profit organization, The Greensboro Children’s Museum depends on the generosity of the community for support. “We are grateful for the generous donation of the ambulance from the Guilford County Commissioners,” King said, “We consistently hear from visitors that the authentic vehicles set us apart from other children’s museums”.
On Thursday, June 19th at 10:30am the ambulance and its recognizable siren will arrive at the Greensboro Children’s Museum. To add to the excitement, the Aycock Middle School Drumline and Dance Team will perform. The Museum will receive the keys from the County Commissioners and express their thanks. Children will be invited to explore and play on the ambulance afterwards.
