CPR & First Aid
First Aid for Little People introduces children, ages 5 to 8 years old, to the emergency action steps: Check, Call, and Care. Additionally, an introduction to some basic first aid procedures is provided. Children learn to recognize emergencies; how to stay calm, how to get help and what to do until help arrives. Cartoon kid characters, Harv and Marv, guide participants through scenarios that teach all about caring for common injuries and illnesses. Topics discussed include identifying specific emergencies, treating cuts, burns, fractures, how to get up and what to do until help arrives. There is a nominal $10.00 fee per student that is used to cover the cost of course materials.
Basic Aid Training teaches children, ages 8 to 11 years old, basic First Aid for nosebleeds, bites, bruises, burns, choking, and fractures. Students learn emergency response skills and personal safety skills that include how to control bleeding and how to respond to and prevent choking and breathing emergencies. BAT helps kids become educated, responsible citizens, armed with the knowledge to help themselves, and others, respond to emergencies.

There is a nominal $10.00 fee per student that is used to cover the cost of course materials.
The Heartsaver CPR AED Course teaches all lay rescuers when to phone 911, how to give CPR, how to use an AED, and how to provide relief of choking. This course is ideal for any community or corporate member that needs or wants to learn CPR and how to operate an AED. Heartsaver CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult CPR and AED use, as well as how to relieve choking on an adult. This course teaches skills with American Heart Association’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching (PWW) technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback and guide the students’ learning of skills. There is a nominal $25.00 fee per student that is used to cover the cost of course materials.
