Safe in the Streetz: CPR & FIRST AID TRAINING PROGRAM

Program Overview:

The Street Wize Foundation’s Safe in the Streetz CPR & First Aid Training Program,  is designed to help participants recognize and appropriately respond to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies.  In addition, participants will develop valuable life skills that can assist them in gaining future employment opportunities within their communities.  Safe in the Streetz has two components, the Basic Safety and the Certified Safety Courses.

 

Basic Safety Course:

The Basic Safety Course is an orientation class that discusses basic CPR and breathing emergency information.  This 1-2 hour orientation class is adapted from the American Red Cross’ First Aid/CPR/AED training curriculum that helps participants learn basic techniques on how to recognize and respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies.

 

Certified Safety Course:

The Certified Safety Course specializes in training participants how to respond to common first aid, cardiac and breathing emergencies.  This 6-8 hour curriculum is adapted from the American Red Cross’ First Aid/CPR/AED Training curriculum that helps participants learn about first aid and cardiac and breathing emergencies. Upon successfully completing this course students will receive a Two-year First Aid and CPR Red Cross certification card that can be used to gain employment as a lifeguard, childcare or EMS.

  • Apply knowledge and skills learned in response to cardiac and breathing emergencies to real-life situations like babysitting, life guarding, or as a summer camp counsellor
