CPR and First Aid Information for Parents

The Early Childhood Resource Center@Falmouth Public Library (ECRC@FPL)–serving parents, as well as providers and teachers– has been asked about where parents can take part in CPR classes for infants and children.  The Falmouth Fire Department offers CPR classes regularly that include methods for infants and children.  Check the Falmouth Fire Department’s

website for more information and the dates of upcoming classes.

The Library also has an assortment of first aid and emergency books: American Medical Association Handbook of First Aid and Emergency Care and The First Aid Manual, by the American College of Emergency Physicians.  In fact, if you are a day care provider you may be interested in Medical Emergencies in Early Childhood Settings.

    I have taken this CPR training course twice in the last ten years with two different instructors.  They were both very good.  It is a good feeling knowing that you can help someone in dire need!

    Sandie,

    Falmouth Fire Department still offers free first aid course and the American Red Cross has a variety of courses ranging from $70 to &120;.  Go to their websites, http://www.falmouthmass.us/cpr/ and http://www.redcross.org and put in your zip code.
