Thousands of adolescents across the country have been trained by Safe Sitter® to handle life threatening emergencies. Chandler Regional Medical Centers' goal is to reduce the number of unintentional deaths of children being cared for by their babysitters.
During this two day course, adolescents age 11 through 13 will receive hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques from trained Safe Sitter® instructors, so they are prepared to respond to crisis situations.
In order to successfully complete the 12-hour medically accurate program, students must pass a practical and written test, showing that they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle emergencies.
All classes are Saturdays, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Specific dates are April 2 and 9, June 11 and 18, July 23 and 30, Sept. 17 and 24. Cost is $60 for the two-day course with all supplies and lunch included. Classes will take place at CRMC, Morrison at 1875 W. Frye Rd., Chandler. Registration is required.
