Stay Safe

Youth Program Offered in Schools

This program is designed to give children basic first aid knowledge and awareness and show them their role in the emergency medical services (EMS) system.  Stay Safe offers basic first aid and safety skills for youth 9-13 years old.  Participants learn about being safe when they are without the direct supervision of a parent, guardian, or trusted adult, both at home and in their communities.

Students will learn and practice doing first aid on each other during this fun interactive class.
