Have you recently welcomed a bundle of joy into your world and would like to learn the skills to help keep them safe? Royal Life Saving is hosting FREE Infant CPR Awareness sessions for all new* parents and caregivers located within the ACT.
Courses are available weekly from now until the end of June, with your little ones encouraged to take part in this face-to-face workshop.
ACT trainers will cover the following in the 1.5-hour session:
Emergency recognition for infants
Emergency response for infants
Infant CPR Awareness
Water Safety at Home
Water Safety Out and About
Parent responsibility is a key focus of the workshop and Royal Life Saving has introduced a supporting resource targeted at Dads and their role in maintaining vigilance for their own safety, as much as their baby’s.
Adult males are consistently and tragically over-represented in drowning statistics. Royal Life Saving’s “Dear Daddy...” letter is written from the bub’s point of view and asks Dads to look after themselves when in and around the water and set good examples as their tiny tots continue to rely on them as role models throughout their early formative years.
“Thanks so much for a very informative and engaging CPR Awareness Workshop on Tuesday. Myself, my partner and Callum enjoyed it.“ - Course participant
*The new Infant CPR Awareness workshops are available to Mums, Dads, Grandparents, and other caregivers of children under the age of 1. Spaces are limited, secure your spot via the link below:
