American Red Cross Offers Community Health & Safety Classes

Learn How to Prepare for Disasters and Emergencies

LANSING, MI, March 5, 2014— Each year, nearly 5 million people learn how to prepare themselves, their households and their businesses for emergencies. The American Red Cross in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham 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 and April.

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.

First Aid/CPR/AED Instructor will prepare instructor candidates to teach basic-level American Red Cross First Aid, CPR and AED courses. This course has been updated to include 2010 ECC Guidelines.

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.

Babysitter’s Training Instructor will prepare instructor candidates to teach the Babysitter’s Training course.

Cat and Dog First Aid will teach participants how to be prepared for emergencies that involve a cat or a dog and how to protect themselves and the animal from further harm, injury or suffering during emergencies by teaching prompt, effective first aid actions and care.

All classes are held at our Mid-Michigan Chapter, located at 1800 E. Grand River Avenue, in Lansing.
