CPR & First Aid Course
Tuesday May 11th 10 am to 12:30 pm.
ASA Now is proud to present this informative presentation: CPR/First Aid for Foster Parents. Whether it's a simple cut or bruise or a life-threatening emergency, no one wants to see a child or a loved one hurt. The Adult and Pediatric First Aid, CPR & AED certification class will prepare you to recognize and care for a variety of first aid, breathing, and cardiac emergencies involving adults, children and infants. This class meets foster licensing requirements.
Jacob's Mission Community Center
7830 E. University Dr. Mesa, AZ 85207
Our CPR/First Aid course for Foster Parents covers: recognition of emergencies, scene and patient assessment, activating 9-1-1, performing hands only CPR and using an AED, and basic first aid including choking, and injury prevention tips. Traditionally, a bystander who witnessed a cardiac event only performed CPR less than 20% of the time; and the expected survival rate was near 8%. People failed to perform for a number of reasons, but some common reasons are: not knowing what to do, fear of litigation, fear of injuring the victim, and fear of contracting a disease. Some of those reasons were well founded, but far-fetched. Our classes cover these topics, and much more!
‘Safety Nick’, as he is affectionately known, is the owner and operator of Home Hazard Prevention, LLC (HHP). As a professional firefighter in the Valley since 2005 with an extensive background in responding to and preventing emergencies, Nick felt that it was time to help the citizens of Maricopa and Pinal Counties learn how to be safe and protect their loved ones in a proactive manner. In 2012, HHP was launched. With the support of his wonderful (and understanding!) wife and two beautiful children, Nick works tireless hours, not only to help save your family’s lives, as a firefighter and a community safety expert, but also to be able to spend quality time with his family. Nick moved to Arizona over 20 years ago and enjoys exploring our great state with his family. Nick can be reached at 480-448-0266 or www.HomeHazardPrevention.com
