Would you know what to do....

I found this information on FOX 8 Cleveland  website -    Be prepared for an emergency!   call us to schedule your training.  Tim is thankful his wife knew what to do!
MAYFIELD HEIGHTS-Would you know how to perform life-saving measures on someone in need? All this week, we are showing you how to safely administer CPR, perform the Heimlich, use an EpiPen, and what to do if someone is having a stroke.

Would your children know what to do?

Don’t ever think you are to old or too young to learn..... this could have ended so different!   Thankfully, this 8 year old acted in a way to save his mom’s life!  Teach your children how to handle emergencies.    Just calling 911, knowing their address and or familiar with their surroundings.   When driving in the car.  Have them look out the window instead of on the electronics.    Talk to them about street signs, names and locations.   Ask you children.

Did you know.... Natural Oils

Some interesting information that we would like to share with you..... Check back for other topics from "Did you know....."   
Why Try Natural Oils?

They are touted as alternatives to condition hair, moisturize skin, fight acne, and strengthen nails. Take a stroll down the beauty aisle of your drugstore and you’ll find them in many products. Do they work? You might need to experiment. Everyone’s skin is different, and it comes down to trial and error.

Menopausal Muffin Top

Did you know.....  
Any woman can get a muffin top. But women are more likely to gain excess bellyweight-- especially deep inside the belly -- as they go throughperimenopauseand intomenopause, when their menstrual cycle ends. That's because asestrogen levelsdrop, body fat is redistributed from the hips, thighs, and buttocks (where it used to be stored as a fuel reserve forbreastfeeding) to theabdomen.

Developing a pooch of subcutaneous (below theskin) fat -- what I call the "menopot" -- is perfectly normal.

Babysitter Training

Do you have an 11-15 year old that is interested in babysitting?   We have a training that will provide those who are planning to babysit with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and responsibly give care for children and infants. This training will help participants to develop leadership skills; learn how to develop a babysitting business, keep themselves and others safe and help children behave through choosing age appropriate activities; and learn about basic child care and basic first aid.

Pets are family that may need cpr

Our pets are family.  Sometime our fur babies may need life saving skills - do you know what to do?

According to theAmerican Society for the Prevention and Cruelty to Animals(ASPCA), if your pet needs CPR you should:

  1. Check to see if he's breathing. If not, place your dog or cat on his side and begin CPR
  2. Administer rescue breaths. Gently extend your pet's neck, then holding his jaws closed, form a seal by placing your mouth over your pet's nose. Blow into his nostrils every 3 seconds.

Reduce the Risk of SIDS & Suffocation

Did you know..... About 3,500 babies die each year in the United States during sleep because of unsafe sleep environments. Some of these deaths are caused by entrapment, suffocation, or strangulation. Some infants die of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). However, there are ways for parents to keep their sleeping baby safe.  
Read on for more information from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on how parents can create a safe sleep environment for their babies. This information should also be shared with anyone who cares for babies, including grandparents, family, friends, babysitters, and child care center staff.

What do you need to know about Carbon Monoxide?

More than 400 Americans die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning every year.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  More than 20,000 visit the emergency room and more than 4,000 others are hospitalized

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that often goes undetected, striking victims caught off guard or in their sleep.

This "silent killer" is produced by burning fuel in cars or trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, portable generators, or furnaces.
