– The visit from the emergency services gives the children extra joy in everyday life

On Christmas Eve, the emergency services in Oslo came to Rikshospitalet to visit the children who spend Christmas in the hospital. It gives extra joy in everyday life, says the nurse.

The emergency services in Oslo, led by fire bear Bjørnis, visited Rikshospitalet on Thursday night to make children happy who have to spend Christmas in hospital.
Halvor Grønli from the police is the initiator of the emergency services’ visit to Rikshospitalet on Thursday night. There they did their part to please children who have to spend Christmas in hospitals.

Three police cars, four ambulances and three fire trucks lit up the winter evening with blue lights outside the children’s ward at Rikshospitalet on Thursday, to the delight of the children who have to stay in hospital through Christmas.

– They have a tough everyday life as usual, and it is important for us to be able to give them something to enjoy when they otherwise have a tough treatment, says initiator Halvor Grønli in the Oslo police district to NTB.

Packages were delivered with the help of the fire and rescue service’s ladder car when the emergency services in Oslo visited the children’s ward at Rikshospitalet on Thursday night to make children happy who have to spend Christmas in hospital.

It is a relatively new tradition that has been going on for five years. Nurse at Rikshosptalet, Adiam Tesfai, has been at work during the visit several times.

– It breaks up everyday life a bit. Especially for those who are very aware of Christmas and the joy around it, it gives a little extra joy in everyday life, says Tesfai to NTB.

Visit from ladder car

Brannbamsen Bjørnis was present when the emergency services in Oslo visited Rikshospitalet on Thursday night to make children happy who have to spend Christmas in hospital.

The department houses children of all ages.

– We think it’s great for the kids. It is not always our time. Then it is very nice that others can step up and assist, says Tesfai.

In previous years, the crews have walked around the corridors of the hospital and spent time with the children, Grønli says.

– Due to the pandemic and the restrictions that mean we have to stay outside the hospital, we must then use the ladder car to the Oslo fire and rescue service and do it this way, he says.

Gifts through the windows

The presents were lifted in through the windows of the fire bear Bjørnis from a ladder car.

The ambulance and police crews do this in their spare time, while the fire crews are on standby. Grønli says that they get very good feedback from the hospital.

– They really appreciate that the emergency services take care of this.
