2018 We are proud to announce the 46th anniversary of our Baby Sitters Course. The Hartsdale Fire District is again offering the annual Baby Sitters Course to anyone twelve years of age or older who has not taken this course before.
This valuable course is offered every year as a service to our residents and neighbors. It provides good basic training for our students to be qualified babysitters. As a babysitter, you are responsible for the care and safety of our youth. Regardless of your age, you are performing a valuable and needed service for which you can be justly proud. We want you and the children for whom you are caring to feel secure while you are babysitting. The course will be given at the Hartsdale Fire Station No. 2 at 300 West Hartsdale Avenue, Hartsdale, 7:00 to 9:00 PM on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from Sept. 13th to Oct 4th, 2018The instructors for the Baby Sitters Course include a Physician, a Neo-Natal Nurse, a Police Department Public Safety Officer, a Director of a local pre-school center, a Paramedic, and Fire Department Training Instructors. Classroom lecture is combined with instructor demonstrations and visual media. Students also participate in hands-on classes such as First Aid, Rescue Breathing, Infant Care, Fire Extinguisher use, and much more. All students receive a Baby Sitter Course handbook and supplemental literature. Early registration is necessary. The class is limited to 35 students with Hartsdale residents receiving priority. Those accepted into the class will be contacted either by phone or e-mail. For more information, please contact the Hartsdale Fire District at 949-2325 or stop in at Fire Station No.2 at 300 West Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale, NY. At the completion of this course, a listing of Baby Sitter Course Graduates, who grant us permission to use their name, will be made available to the public by the Hartsdale Fire District. This is done as a public service to those who are seeking the services of a qualified, responsible baby sitter.
