Police and fire departments, provide teddy bears
to accident and trauma victims, world-wide
Throughout our childhood, teddy bears have become one of our cherished friends. Cuddling teddy bears evokes a sense of peace, security and comfort. For trauma victims, especially children, a teddy bear that has been given to them by a fire fighter, paramedic or police officer helps lessen stress and the adverse psychological effects of trauma. It has been established that considerable comfort is obtained from cuddling, naming and speaking to a teddy bear.
