Infant / Child CPR & Safety

Common Sense CPR Infant CPR & Safety Workshop 

Come learn Life Saving skills with a common sense approach with the instructor, Vanessa J. Anton.

Our kids come with no manuals but gaining confidence for that emergency is what I strive to teach.  Prevention is the number one priority to avoid a child from experiencing a life-threatening emergency. The next step after an emergency has occurred is knowing how to immediately respond.  In this class the topics that will be covered will be the following:

- Safe Sleep Practices & SIDS Preventions

- Basic Infant & Child  CPR 

- Critical safety information for the early years 

- The steps to take in the event of choking

- Infant & Child Car Safety Tips 

*Please note* This workshop is NOT a CPR Certification course. price is per family (1-2 people)
