The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library and HSHS St. Anthony Memorial Hospital are pleased to offer free Safe Sitter (babysitting) class in the Workman Room of the library, Saturday, May 14 from 9 to 3:30 p.m.

Safe Sitter prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. 

Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who is choking and helpful information like what to do if there is severe weather.  The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing.  Students even use CPR manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue.
