Houston, TX (March 10) – Neighbors Emergency Center and Radio Disney have partnered up to bring safety and emergency education to the students at Gardens Elementary School.
In late February of this year, the Radio Disney Road Crew visited Gardens Elementary School in Pasadena, bringing with them fun presentations, interactive games, and giveaways provided by NEC.
The Gardens Elementary student body gathered to listen attentively to the Road Crew’s presentation on how to identify an emergency and what to do if one happens.
“We believe it is important for children to learn at an early age what an emergency looks like and how to react to it,” said John Decker, CFO.
Among the games that the Radio Disney crew led with the children was Bandage Me Up, where a member of the Road Crew pretended to injure their wrist, knee, or elbow and the children would be in charge of bandaging the injury. Another game was Word Scramble Emergency, where a group of nine children were each handed one letter of the word “emergency” and then were asked to move around and arrange themselves to spell the word correctly. Finally, the crew organized a ‘Simon Says’ type of game called Nick Says, where the children acted out “I have a fever” or “I have a tummy ache” according to which emotion Nick expressed.
“Games are a great way to engage children into a fun learning process, which is why we are always so excited to bring the Radio Disney crew to different schools to show children how learning can be fun,” said Myra Graves, Director of Operations.
