Armstrong Ambulance to Participate in Touch-A-Truck Portion of Masonic Lodge’s MYCHIP Event
ARLINGTON — Members of the community will have an opportunity to explore a vehicle from Armstrong Ambulance’s fleet in Saugus later this month.
Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saugus Senior Center, 466 Central St.
Armstrong Ambulance will take part in a touch-a-truck event alongside first responders from the Saugus Police and Fire Departments, as well as construction equipment from local businesses.
The touch-a-truck is part of the William Sutton Masonic Lodge’s MYCHIP event, which provides parents with an opportunity to develop identification kits for children in the event they go missing.
MYCHIP stands for Masonic Youth Child Identification Program.
The MYCHIP kits– including fingerprints, dental impressions, DNA swabs, video interviews and more identifying information — will be generated on a compact disc and given parents as a vital resource to provide to law enforcement in an emergency in order to expedite the search process. The program is entirely free to all who attend, and you do not have to be a Saugus resident to take part.
As part of the day, Armstrong will have an ambulance available to explore as well as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) on scene to explain equipment and answer any questions children and adults may have regarding Emergency Medical Services.
