Are you ready for the next big emergency? These family safety tips are must knows for all parents. I'm actually CPR certified, but when FOX invited me to a Mom CPR and safety seminar to celebrate the premieres of two of their fall television shows, 9-1-1 with a special 2-Night Premiere Event on September 23rd and 24th at 9/8c and The Resident on September 24th at 8/7c only, I jumped at the chance to get a refresher and to learn any other family safety tips.
Let's be honest, are any of us totally prepared for the next big emergency? Here in Los Angeles, it's pretty much a matter of time until the next earthquake hits. And the reality is, as parents we want to be prepared for ANY emergency. Drowning, choking, major falls – these are all risks of childhood play and life.
When I asked y'all about your safety readiness on Instagram Stories, about half of you said you didn't feel prepared. These tips from the safety expert who taught our seminar are must knows.
Family Safety Tips
Become familiar with the AAP updated anti-SIDS recommendations: In the last few years, the American Academy of Pediatrics has announced new recommendations for safe sleeping environments. You can read the latest HERE.
Stay up to date on car seat recommendations: Have you seen all the buzz about updated car seat recommendations? The AAP JUST released updates and new info, and it's important. Read it HERE.
No eating in the car or on the move: Did you know children choking in the car is common? Since keeping your eyes on the road AND an eating child is impossible, one recommendation we heard was to limit eating in the car as much as possible.
I loved learning some new family safety tips, and it was the perfect way for us moms to celebrate the season premieres of the two FOX shows, The Resident and 9-1-1. These shows chronicle the lives of residents at a busy hospital and the lives of first responders in LA (and the first episode shows that huge earthquake hitting). I'm a HUGE fan of realistic dramas (along with a killer romance), and these shows are RIGHT up my alley!
