Montgomery County Hospital District to offer Free Pediatric CPR & First-Aid Classes
Montgomery County Hospital District is offering Pediatric CPR & First-Aid classes for free in light of a new, stricter Texas law on licensed childcare facilities including homes. The new law requires childcare providers to take Pediatric CPR & First-Aid classes if employed at a licensed daycare facility or a licensed in-home daycare. The first class of 2019 is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on January 19th at the MCHD Administration Building located at 1400 S Loop 336 West in Conroe, Texas 77304. Classes will be held once a month in 2019. The class includes an American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR/AED certification.
Pre-registration is required, and classes tend to fill quickly. The upcoming schedule and more information can be found at www.mchd-tx.org under “upcoming events.” Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led course that teaches students to respond to and manage illnesses and injuries in a child or infant in the first few minutes until professional help arrives.
This course is designed to meet the regulatory requirements for child care workers in all 50 U.S. states.
Montgomery County Hospital District’s mission is to care for the indigent and provide EMS services while protecting the interest of taxpayers and ensuring long-term stability through fund development. For more information about the Montgomery County Hospital District please go to www.mchd-tx.org.
