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.
This training is for Kinship, Foster or Guardianship parents caring for children in foster care. This training includes Childcare.
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!
- Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a certificate for Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED valid for two years.
This class is typically $45 per person. This event is sponsored by Brittany Labadie from Lewis Labadie Law Firm. Brittany is known in our community as the "Adoption Attorney". Her website can be found HERE and her email is email@example.com and she can be reached at 480-598-8724.

We will do our best to provide childcare to all families who request it, however, our ability to do so depends on the number of volunteers who sign up to help.
We will be playing games, doing crafts, and snacks. If you have children with restrictive diets and/or food allergies we ask that you bring them a sack lunch labeled with their name. If their allergy requires an epi-pen please be sure to bring it and give it to a supervisor at check-in.
For each child we request that you bring an index card with information that volunteers should be aware of for children with special needs and/or allergies written down. Hand the card to your child's volunteer AND verbally explain the information to the volunteer assigned to your child at the event. This will help ensure that your child stays safe.
If your child has a particular food that they like, toys or card games, please provide those to the volunteer.
Additionally, we ask that you bring a change of clothes for each young child. Bring all clothing in a backpack labeled with your family's last name. if your child tends to have accidents or is potty training, please let the volunteer know and please send them in pull ups. Be sure to bring diaper bags for the little ones with enough formula and comfort items and preferred snacks to keep them as happy as possible while you are attending the workshop. Be sure to label the diaper bag with your last name as well.
Due to the time and effort that it takes to put these events together, we want you to be aware that there are NO REFUNDS or CANCELLATIONS. If you are unable to attend, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible by calling 623-428-1592.
