BAY CITY, MI, February 12, 2013 -- Each year, nearly 5 million people learn how to prepare themselves, their households and their businesses for emergencies. The American Red Cross in Arenac, Bay, Huron & Tuscola Counties is offering the following courses where people can join the ranks of those ready and prepared to save a life! Listed below are our course offerings for March.
The First Aid and CPR/AED courses teach people how to perform CPR and use an AED (automated external defibrillator), what to do if someone is choking, and how to prevent and respond to other emergencies until advanced medical help arrives. Course participants also learn how to control bleeding as well as how to care for seizures and other sudden illnesses.
Babysitter's Training will give 11-15 year-olds the skills and confidence to safely and responsibly care for children and infants. Caregiving skills take prospective young sitters from feeding to diapering and playtime to bedtime routines. Participants also learn how to handle emergencies such as injuries, illnesses and household accidents.
All classes are held at our Bay City Office, located at 228 Washington Avenue, in Bay City.
