At the American Red Cross, we believe in being prepared to help anyone, including infants, children, and adults, during times of crisis. That's why the vast majority of our first aid classes deliver care instructions for all three populations. In addition, in order to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to train with us, we offer adult and pediatric first aid training in Grand Island in three ways – online, in-person, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. This way, no matter what your schedule may be or how you learn best, you can gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing care to anyone – at any age, and at any time.
When it comes to delivering care during times of crisis, having the right supplies is almost as important has having the right skills. That's why all of our Grand Island first aid classes include information on what to stock in your first aid kit. By helping you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing the right care at the right moment, we can empower you to help anyone – including adults, infants, and children, when they need it most.
