Safety Education

Would you know how to react in an emergency? Are you aware that you are more likely to perform life-saving first aid on a family member more than to a stranger? Prepare yourself for the unexpected by taking our safety classes. All classes are American Red Cross courses and are offered at various times during the year. 

The SDFWC is committed to providing advanced educational opportunities to the ASU community by offering nationally recognized certifications in CPR, First Aid and AED training. Participation in our certification classes can provide great professional development opportunities, encourage critical thinking, and instill the confidence to respond when emergencies happen.
