KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Dozens of kids got the chance Tuesday to participate in interactive classes on abduction prevention, and car and bike safety at the Life EMS Ambulance 9-1-1 Camp.

It's a day-long camp sponsored by Life EMS Ambulance, and it's a testament to the company's passion of prevention and dedication of giving back to the community.

During the day, kids rode in the fire truck bucket, and even got to spray the fire hoses.

They also learned to give CPR on life-size mannequins and got a first aid lesson.

Other sessions included stranger danger, bullying prevention, and Internet safety.

"Real life emergencies happen at any time and anywhere, said EMT Noah Olweean, with Life EMS. "So to make sure our kids are ready for these things, it's very important to make sure they are properly trained and make sure they are comfortable dealing with things on an everyday basis."

The camp happens about 8 times a year, and is free and open to the public.
