Troo the Traumaroo
Safety is very important for young children, but safe behaviors must be learned. That’s why Memorial Medical Center is proud to present the American Trauma Society’s Traumaroo programs for children ages four through 12.
Traumaroo offers four exciting safety presentations:
- Troo the Traumaroo and Bicycle Safety
- Troo the Traumaroo and Playground Safety
- Staying Friends (Conflict Resolution)
- Troo and the Home Safety Hunt
Each presentation is designed to teach safe behaviors in a fun and entertaining manner. Troo is an eight foot kangaroo, who stars in interactive video presentations and gives kids hugs at the end of the program. Children receive stickers and coloring books to reinforce learning, and take home to share with their parents and siblings.
