Safe sitter course set

BAR HARBOR — A Safe Sitter course for young teens, grades 6-8, will be hosted by the MDI Hospital at the Lisa Stewart Women’s Health Center on May 6.

More than 600,000 young teens have graduated from the Safe Sitter program, which teaches how, why and where injuries can happen so that they can be prevented.

The course provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques to young teens who are home alone, watching younger siblings or babysitting so that they are equipped with the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

Students who graduate from the course receive a completion card demonstrating that they know how to use their skills in situations they encounter.

The course costs $40. Call 288-5082, ext. 1444 to register your son or daughter or your child’s babysitter.
