Ambulance station welcomes Ukrainian refugees

WELSH ambulance service staff have recently welcomed Ukrainian refugees to their station


Yesterday, Rhyl Ambulance Station hosted Ukrainian refugees who have settled in the area to teach them about the Welsh Ambulance Service.


As a result of Russia’s invasion on Ukraine, a large number of Ukrainian people have been displaced from their homes.


To welcome them into Rhyl community, 10 Welsh Ambulance staff members gave those families living in the area a tour of the station and taught them lifesaving skills, all through an interpreter.


Dermot O’Leary, Duty Operations Manager for Conwy and Denbighshire, who helped arrange the visit, said: “Humanitarianism crosses all language barriers.

“It’s been a great experience, especially seeing the smiles on the children’s faces as they had a go at bandaging.


“No words or interpreters are needed to see enjoyment first-hand.”


The children were able to tour an emergency ambulance and rapid response vehicle and learnt how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator.


Dermot continued: “It was great to see community engagement in action, especially from so many of our staff who willingly gave up their free time to support the visit.


“Seeing these kids from a war-torn country being so positive and upbeat made me really value what I have and realise that despite all the pressures, we are lucky.”
