Family and Friends CPR and Safety for Infants and Children

Family and Friends CPR and Safety for Infants and Children

Congratulations! You are expecting a baby and it is an exciting time. The members of our Childbirth Education, or CBE, team at Flagstaff Medical Center are here to help you and your family prepare for this experience. We offer a variety of classes and services to give you the information and assistance you will need for birth and beyond. Classes are taught by Labor and Delivery nurses and certified and specially trained healthcare professionals. Early registration is recommended, as classes fill up quickly.

For more information on all CBE classes, email Autumn Argent at Autumn.Argent@nahealth.com.


Course description

This American Heart Association safety course is designed for parents, family, friends, and care-givers of infants and children. Attendees will learn how to respond to and deliver CPR and relieve choking to manage emergency illness and injury until professional help arrives.

Topics also include injury prevention, environmental emergencies and car seat education. Attendees will receive an American Heart Association booklet for this course. This is a non-certification course, so participants will not need to take an examination upon completion of the course. The $25 tuition price is for two people. This class is offered in partnership with the Flagstaff Exchange Club.

This class is offered FREE in the community each spring and fall!
