Be Prepared- Take a Red Cross Course

While this weather may not accurately portray the current season, it is indeed Summer.  Most schools are out for summer break, which means hiking, swimming, camping, boating; basically anything and everything outdoors.

Summer is a great time to vacation and is usually filled with fun activties for familes, kids and adults. But it also means an increased risk for injuries and other emergencies.

With our new course schedule now online, you can sign up for a number of classes to keep you safe this summer. Our classes include First Aid/CPR/AED training, Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Cat and Dog First Aid, Babysitter's Training, Scout First Aid Merit Badge, and Disaster Services Training.

Our website also includes links to helpful information about staying safe before, during, and after a multitude of emergencies, including how to deal with a Heat Wave, Swimming Safety, Floods, Fires,  Earthquakes, and many more.

So take the first step in becoming a Prepared citizen by taking a class and learning life saving skills that just might come in handy during these summer months.

And check out this great article from the Standard Examiner in Ogden about summer safety.
