Schertz Emergency Medical Services will be hosting a new Child and Babysitting Safety program from the American Safety and Health Institute on July 22 and Aug. 12.

This program helps educate teenagers and young adults about successful babysitting. The course includes topics surrounding caregiving, first aid and other safety tips.

There are no prerequisites to attend the program, but CPR/AED and basic first aid certifications are strongly recommended. The certifications can also be obtained through the course.

Students who complete the course will receive a certification that is good for two years.
