Students in grades 4-6 can learn tips to prepare them to be safe when they are home alone.

The Tomah Memorial Hospital Community Outreach Department is offering the Safe@Home by Safe Sitter class June 13 and June 18 from 4-5:30 p.m. both days.

“The Safe@Home class is a 90-minute program that teaches students how to practice safe habits, how to prevent unsafe situations, and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies,” said Tomah Memorial community health educator Julie Anderson, RN. “The class also introduces students to the Safe Sitter first aid chart and provides tips on ways students can learn a system to help assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.”
