From Northshore Fire

Would your son or daughter know what to do if a child choked when they were babysitting? Would they know how to call 911? How to handle a nosebleed? Safe Sitters learn all these things . . . and more!

The Northshore Fire Department is offering a Safe Sitter® class on Thursday/Friday, July 22nd/23rd. Safe Sitter® is a medically accurate babysitting preparation program designed for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. The nationally recognized program teaches sitters how to have fun with children as well as how to recognize a medical emergency and know the appropriate action to take. Students learn how to handle specific ages, prevent problem behavior, and the business of babysitting. Students also learn basic lifesaving techniques such as infant and child CPR, and techniques to use for a choking infant or child.

“To successfully complete the Safe Sitter program, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test to show they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency,” says Terri Jones, Northshore Fire Department Community Educator.

Students must be between 11 and 13 years of age. Cost for the class is $40.00 and includes a take-home Safe Sitter kit. Class is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Register for the class at Northshore Fire or contact Terri Jones, 425-486-2784.
