The Schertz EMS Community Health Department is now offering a Child and Babysitting Safety class that teaches adolescents how to prepare for the added responsibility of a child or infant. The course builds confidence in diapering, feeding, playtime activities, what to do in an emergency, and questions to ask before the job. The first class will be held on Saturday, August 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Schertz EMS Training Room, 1400 Schertz Parkway Bldg. 7.
The new Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) program from the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) gives teenagers and young adults everything they need to know for safe and successful babysitting, from dealing with parents and children, to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips. The magazine-format CABS guide and vlogger-style video make learning fun which is perfect for teens and young adults interested in babysitting or who are responsible for younger family members. There are no prerequisites, however, CPR/AED and Basic First Aid certification are strongly recommended. Students must complete a written and skills examination, and those who successfully complete the course will receive a certification that is good for 2 years.
