The Women’s Resource Center and the Natchitoches Parish Fire District 6 have partnered together to introduce a free monthly Child Safety Class, to begin in March.
This class aims in preparation to keep one’s baby safe and happy. Each class will be led by trained fire personnel from Natchitoches Parish Fire District 6 who will walk participants through basic infant and child CPR, choking, basic first aid, and home safety tips for inside and out along with practicing fire safety. This is not a certification course and NPFD6 encourages everyone to take a full CPR & First Aid Course.
“One of the most effective ways for us to provide life safety is through effective public education. FD6 is honored to partner with the WRC to provide such a critical class for parents.” stated FD6 Chief Mike Sesvold.
Each attendee will also receive a portable compact first aid kit, ideal for a home, car, travel, and outdoor emergencies.
Executive Director of the WRC, Jennifer Luna, stated, “Being able to consistently deliver quality education to our clients in a variety of ways is a marker of the essential work that we do on a daily basis at the Women’s Resource Center. Community partnerships are a key part of growth and we greatly look forward to NPFD6 educating hundreds of our clients.”
Other classes that the WRC offers expecting mothers are Car Seat Safety, Breastfeeding Education, Childbirth Education, and Healthy Beginnings. These one-of-a-kind classes in the entire Natchitoches area are uniquely designed for expecting mothers.
