MetroAtlanta Ambulance Participates in Red Ribbon Week at Park Street Elementary School to Educate Kids about Drug and Alcohol Prevention

MetroAtlanta Ambulance partnered with Park Street Elementary School to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of children through a commitment to drug prevention and education.

Devan Seabaugh, Vice President with MetroAtlanta Ambulance stated, "These kids represent the future of America and it is everyone?s responsibility to ensure they fully understand the effects and consequences that using drugs and alcohol will have on their health, their lives and the lives of those around them. Drugs are readily available to kids these days and we hope by starting early and talking often with our kids about the consequences, that they will make good decisions and say no to drugs when the opportunity does arise."

MetroAtlanta Ambulance provided a box of Red Ribbon Week supplies including banners, water bottles, key chains, ribbons, bookmarks etc., to distribute to the kids throughout the week as ongoing reminders about what they?ve learned in regards to drug and alcohol prevention.

MetroAtlanta Ambulance is the 9-1-1 ambulance provider for Cobb County including the cities of Acworth, Kennesaw and Marietta. MetroAtlanta serves as a partner in education with Park Street Elementary through the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. For more information on how to become a partner in education go to www.cobbchamber.org
