pageiconsafety3Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe is important to us all. Summer in Alaska provides special safety challenges with more time on the water and endless daylight hours for fun activities and home maintenance. Focusing on prevention and safe practices trains us to think of safety first whenever we engage in an activity; whether at work, recreation or everyday around the house.

South Peninsula Hospital provides “Safe Sitter” classes four times yearly; twice in the summer and once during each of the spring and winter school breaks. The program is very comprehensive, teaching skills such as behavior management, first aide, child care, business skills and safety for the sitter. To enroll in a class or get on the waiting list for the next class, you can call 235-0259. The class fee is $70 and preregistration is required.
