The SCTU serves patients ranging from newborns to those of advanced age
with multiple medical problems. These ambulances carry state-of-the-art

Teddy Bear ER
We are excited to offer Teddy Bear ER for Pre-K through 1st grade students
in our community. The program is approximately 45 minutes long and the
children will have an opportunity to learn about a healthy lifestyle,
tour a new Saint Clare’s ambulance, and practice teddy bear first
aid. The Saint Clare’s EMS team will familiarize children with the
sights, sounds and the “helpers” they may encounter in an
emergency. We invite students to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed
animal from home. Our paramedics and EMT’s will patch up teddy bear’s
boo boos and offer other fun activities.
This is a popular service for schools within our community. We encourage
you to schedule your school's program as early as possible.
