First aid; (12) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR certification is required prior to a staff member being left unsupervised to care for children; and Staff person trained in first aid and CPR must be on site during hours of operation CPR CPR can be crucial to the life of a child or staff person. All staff are required to have infant and child CPR training within 90 days after the date of employment and their CPR certification is to remain valid from that point forward. But, one staff on-site at all times is required to be certified in CPR. Staff caring for children are to be supervised by an individual who is certified in CPR at all times until his/her CPR certification is completed. The regulations require hands-on skill testing as part of the CPR training. For example, a staff may be able to obtain CPR coursework on-line but would be required to complete the hands-on skill test in person. There are some on-line CPR courses that are strictly knowledge testing, that do not offer hands-on skill testing, those programs do not meet the intent of the CPR requirement and would not be counted as part of the training hours required for licensing requirements.

Here's a few stories that warmed our heart. Just sharing and thanking you for choosing a career that helps people that need it most.

Two friends to the rescue

"It was an ordinary day for Bill Winness and his two friends who’re walking on Western Mall. When Keith Clark started to feel dizzy and suffering a heart attack. His two friends Grab right away the AED and perform CPR. Good thing Winness was trained enough on how to use AED and perform CPR. Clark is very lucky to have a friend who knows what to do during that situation, what they just did is they helped Clark to provide the necessary oxygen that the brain needs and help his heart pump blood while waiting for the emergency responders. And that’s how Clark preserved his life. And Now, the two friends still continue doing their morning routine and wait for Clark until he gets better. "
