ABOUT 40 youngsters spent the morning learning about emergency service roles at a youth event in Yanchep today.

The City of Wanneroo youth team hosted the event at Yanchep Active Open Space.

It included interactive information sessions with St John Ambulance, fire services and Wanneroo rangers.

Brady Fulcher (8), whose sisters are volunteer surf lifesavers, said it was “lots of fun” though he could not understand “why you would want to get paid to help people”.

“I have learned a lot of things about ambulances I didn’t know before,” he said.

Youngsters learnt about ambulances and the roles of ambulance officers.
