Food for thought... chew it up!

Do you know what the number one food children younger than 10-years of age choke on?
Hot dogs!
Hot dogs account for more that 17% of choking occurrences in children.  Several of us here at the Chapter have witnessed the look of fear and panic that fills a young child’s eyes when they realize they can’t breathe, and it is safe to say that is one of the scariest things to see. What’s worse is when no one knows what to do.  If your child or loved one were to choke today, would you know what to do in order to save their life?  Take the steps now to be prepared!
The Chapter offers child CPR/AED courses and we encourage all parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers and babysitters to get certified, so if they’re ever put in that situation, they will know how to react and save a life!
For more information or to sign up for a course, visit us online or call us at 716.878.2387.
