The information contained here is provided to parents as a quick reference for handling various emergencies that may arise pertaining to the health or safety of your child.

This information was gathered from the most accurate data at the time of publication. However, it is not intended to be a complete first-aid training, nor is it intended to substitute for advice from a medical professional.

We highly recommend all parents take a class in adult/child first aid and CPR. These are invaluable skills that all parents should know. Please contact your local chapter of the American Red Cross for info and times on these classes, or look up information online by visiting www.redcross.org.

With those precautions in mind, here is a summary of first aid guidelines for you to use in the event of an emergency. Study this information well before the emergency happens, since you won’t necessarily have time during the emergency.
