Medical City Weatherford will host a free first aid and summer safety class for children on Saturday, June 16.
“We are dedicated to the care and improvement of human life, a mission that we extend beyond the hospital walls by educating children on health and safety topics,” says Donna Boone, CNO of Medical City Weatherford. “Offering community events at our facility is another important way that we can give back and improve our community’s health.”
The first aid and summer safety classes are designed for children ages 7-14 and cover a range of health-related issues around the home. Topics include when to call 911 and what information to have ready, heart attack and stroke recognition, basic first aid for cuts and insect bites, sun and heat exposure and other summer related topics.
“We know that many children are home alone during the summer or staying with family members,” says Cyndi Aguirre, Director of Emergency Services for Medical City Weatherford. “These classes help teach kids what to do in an emergency when an adult may not be present or if the adult needs help.”
The free event will be held on Saturday, June 16, 9:30am– 11:30am at Medical City Weatherford, located at 713 East Anderson Street Weatherford, TX 76086. Space is limited and reservations are required. Online registration is available at MedicalCityWeatherford.com, classes and events. Light refreshments will be provided along with tours inside a PHI medical helicopter and a Weatherford firetruck.
