American Red Cross Offers Community Health & Safety Classes

Learn How to Prepare for Disasters and Emergencies

LANSING, MI, June 17, 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 July.

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 Mid-Michigan Chapter, located at 1800 E. Grand River Avenue, in Lansing.
