Safe Sitter

Safe Sitter prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information like what to do if there's severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue!
