For a child, a medical emergency is not typically a pleasurable experience.

Over the holidays, MedStar crews hope to bring a little bit of happiness to an otherwise scary experience for our littlest patients!

Thanks to a generous donation by PetSmart, nearly 100 brand new stuffed animals are now deployed on MedStar ambulances and will be given to pediatric patients we treat over the holidays.

For safety, each toy is individually shrink-wrapped to assure they are kept sanitized until gifted to our special kiddos!

We hope this ‘special delivery’ will help make an EMS response a little less scary!
