Barton’s Early Childhood and Emergency Medical Services Programs want to make sure people can provide emergency care if required and are offering an Infant and Toddler CPR & First Aid Course from 1-5 p.m. Sept. 15 in the Technical Building, Room T-147. Adult CPR will also be taught. 

The course will cover:
•    CPR/choking for the child and infant
•    Common Medical Emergencies in the child and infant (asthma, seizures, croup, and allergic reactions)
•    Stopping bleeding
•    Basics of stabilization of injuries in the first 10 minutes

The course is $20 and only cash will be accepted.
