Stay Safe! Course

Virtual Classroom

The Stay Safe! course is offered in a virtual classroom! Participants login from the comfort of their own home using Zoom.


Our certified Red Cross instructors demonstrate, share slides, and facilitate learning activities among participants. Each participant will finish this course with the confidence and skills needed to stay home safe.​




Our youth are the future, but Little Lungs wants to make sure they are safe in the present. 

Our Stay Safe! program equip youth ages 9-13 with necessary, age-appropriate knowledge and skills needed to ensure they are safe- whether they are by themselves, with others, or out and about in the community.Youth will also learn how to prepare, recognize and respond to unpredictable situations- like what to do during inclement and severe weather, if you come across strangers, or unanticipated visits.

Having these skills in one’s arsenal can give youth the confidence to deal with challenges they come across. 

We also believe that safety is something to be embodied. Our unique Stay Safe! core values are rooted in what we teach and how we teach. 

These values, such as the importance of responsibility and respect while being accountable for yourself and the importance of setting and following rules around safety when staying on your own, can help youth develop a safety-first mindset that they will use for the rest of their lives. 

What makes our course unique is our comprehensive review of First aid content. 

Our certified Red Cross instructors cover all these concepts in detail to make sure our students are comfortable and confident handling any situation:

  • The three C’s to an emergency – Check, Call, Care. Emergency situations can be stressful and it’s hard to think straight. These three steps provide a solid structure for how you should act in an emergency situation, can help you minimize harm, and possibly save a life! 

  • Feeling unwell - You will learn what the best treatment for someone who feels unwell is as well as when/if emergency services are needed. 

  • Recovery position - This is a LIFE SAVING position that everyone needs to know. If you are in an emergency with an unconscious person, putting them in this position keeps their airway clear and open so they avoid choking on their tongue, vomit, or fluid. 

  • Conscious choking - Breathing emergencies such as choking are a leading cause of injury-related death to Canadian children. Learn the proper techniques to save a baby, child, adult, or yourself from choking. 

  • CPR - Otherwise known as “Cardiopulmonary resuscitation”, is a life-saving technique that helps maintain blood flow to the brain and heart in an emergency situation. This drastically increases the chance of survival in those who suffer from cardiac arrest and is the best approach to unblock the airway of a person who is choking. In our course, you will learn when to use it, the proper steps, and proper hand placement. 

  • Asthma - More than 3 million Canadians have this chronic condition. Asthma can be characterized by cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and wheezing. In our course, you will learn the functions of an inhaler and spacer and how to use it in order to help someone who lives with this condition in an emergency.

  • Anaphylaxis - You will learn about this severe allergic reaction to things such as venom, food, medication, bee stings, and more as around 2.5 million Canadians live with anaphylaxis. You will also learn how to use an EpiPen – which is used when someone suffers from a life-threatening allergic reaction. 

  • Poison - In 2020, it was reported that unintentional poisoning surpassed motor-vehicle collisions as a major cause of preventable death in Canada. So many household products, such as cleaning agents, personal care and topical products, and pesticides, are among the top ten substances responsible for poisoning exposures annually. In our course, we will teach you what to do in a situation where you or someone in your supervision is exposed to or ingests poison.  

  • Insect stings - Summertime means the bugs are out! Our course will teach you how to reduce pain, swelling, itching, how to remove stingers, and how to know if emergency care is needed. 

  • Wound care - With our course, you will learn how to treat minor cuts, scrapes, how to remove splinters from yourself and others, the best treatment for a nosebleed and burns, the best way to treat bumps and bruises, and what to do if someone is experiencing life threatening bleeding. Proper wound care prevents infection and other complications, and also helps speed up the healing process with less scarring. 

Plus - all of this is learned within the comfort and familiarity of your own home. The course is spread out over two sessions that are 2 hours in length.

All you need to participate in the course are: a device you can access the free Zoom app with, an internet connection, and a teddy bear or doll to practice practical skills like CPR and choking first aid. 

After finishing our course, students will receive a Canadian Red Cross Certificate AND a bonus PDF & physical copy of the Stay Safe! course manual so you can access this important information at any time.
