Heartsafe Alachua

100% Survival for our children

When our child care providers and teachers are trained in CPR/AED and First Aid,  we have a better chance of making sure our children are safe when in the care of others. 
Become a HeartSafe Facility:
Earn this designation by getting 100% of your staff CPR and First Aid Certified. You will be presented with an official certificate and seals to place at your front desk, front door logo, social media, etc. Your facility should tell parents that your staff is prepared should something happen at your facility.
