People Savers Training "Prepare! Stay Safe! Survive!"
Perfect for schools, boy-scouts, girl-guides, or any youth program! People Savers is a 4-level program developed by the Canadian Red Cross to teach safety awareness and first aid skills to elementary school-aged children.
Lessons taught by the People Savers Facilitator are supported by colouring workbooks for each level. Participants follow the PeopleSavers character for each level through a variety of everyday situations that are potentially dangerous and they learn to Check for Safety, Call for Help, and care for an Injured Person.
Designed for youth 5-12 years of age. This course has 4 levels: the content, time and cost for each level scales with the age of the group.
