Special Presentations

Jeff Froman, Emergency Management Coordinator for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and  Dr. Larry Franken They came to show the kids about diseases - esp. those related to respiratory system (like TB, pertussis, etc.) by using PPE's (Personal Protective Equipment)...they had the kids put on things a healthcare worker (nurse,etc.) might wear around a sick/contagious individual - like booties, cap (skull cap), gloves, mask, splash shield, gown, etc. They allowed the kids to keep most items:-) They also had one volunteer put the Tyvek suit on - a suit that is more protective (blowing purified air on face & more 'air tight'). There's probably more I could add...but you can let me know if you want more. It was fun:-)
