Emergency Responder Day at Onondaga Road

Emergency Reponder Day at OR CollageOn Tuesday, October 26 the students at Onondaga Road Elementary School had an amazing learning experience on Emergency Responder Day.

Thanks to School Resource Officer Tom Skardinski, representatives from WAVES Ambulance, Fairmount Fire Department, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department K-9, Syracuse Police Department SWAT, and Camillus Police Department who taught our students what it means to be an Emergency Responder and what they should do if they are called upon for help. They showed the students their equipment, their vehicles, and most importantly, the heart they have for helping others. We are so very grateful!

Many of the staff and students came to school dressed as Emergency Responders too, making the day that much more impactful. First grade classes extended the learning with a visit to Hospital Land (set up in their classrooms), and children participated in various hospital-based learning tasks. All of our students also took part in writing thank you notes, so their voices will be heard throughout the community!
