Jungle out there to teach safety

The Jungle Mobile will be at Bea Underwood Elementary School this Monday. The Jungle Mobile isn’t just an old ambulance painted to look like something on a safari. It’s meant to provide injury prevention education for kids between the ages of 3 and 10. The Grand Valley Kiwanis Club is sponsoring the program in Parachute this Monday. The Jungle Mobile is based at the Children’s Hospital in Denver and makes regular trips to rural Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska.”This is a great program,” said Steve Randol, a Kiwanis member. “They go through everything with the kids from what to do if there’s a fire in the house to how to dial 9-1-1 and all sorts of things. The fire department will be out there with their (emergency medical services) people.”
