Youth Training Programs

Home Alone (1 Day)

A course created for the 9 and 10 year old age group who may occasionally be left alone for short periods of time - designed to teach skills necessary for staying safe. Ideally, children should be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. However, many common events and situations can result in short term periods where a child must take on the responsibility for themselves. Parents may arrive home later than usual due to unforeseen traffic jams, parents may be next door visiting neighbours or they could become incapacitated due to medical issues that suddenly develop. Whatever the reason, St. John Ambulance believes that youth who are well prepared for the unexpected, will more confidently handle an emergency and be safer as a result. Participants will learn how to deal with phone calls and visitors, recognize hazards and follow home safety procedures, first aid basics, healthy eating, fire safety and how and when to use 911 to obtain emergency help. * This program is a more comprehensive version of the Home Alone program published by the Canada Safety Council.
