There’s a terrific program going on here in town that you might not know about here—it’s called the Teddy Train.
The concept is brilliant: Arm Foxboro Police and Fire personnel with stuffed bears and dolls, so when they go out on calls they can give them to children who experience a traumatic event. When kids have been in an accident or fire, or need to be transported by ambulance, emergency personnel want to make the child as comfortable as possible.
