I work as a Firefighter for the Fitchburg Fire Department and can’t say enough about the impact of these REACH BAGs. We were recently dispatched to a medical call involving an ill female in the city of Fitchburg late one night. When we arrived on scene, her 4 children ranging from 4 to 12 years old were all present, around her, and very upset.
The REACH BAG on our apparatus allowed our crew to help the children direct their attention to something else and keep them calm. Two of the youngest children began to smile and laugh at some of the books that was inside the REACH BAG. Not only was their mother able to receive the attention and time needed from the crew and paramedics, but the children’s minds were released from burden, stress, and fear. The REACH-A-Child™ REACH BAGs truly are a great asset to have for everyone involved. Steve Boyd – Fitchburg Fire Department
