Safe Sitter

Ransom Memorial is a proud sponsor of the Safe Sitter program. We know that emergency situations may arise when children are with baby-sitters and that is why we are encouraging all 11 to 13 year olds to take part in our Safe Sitter program.

Would your child know what to do if an emergency occurred while they are babysitting?
Is your child taking on a job that he or she has not been properly trained for?

The program is designed for 11 to 13 year-olds. It is a medically accurate program. The first goal of the program is to reduce the number of accidental and preventable deaths among children, while under the supervision of a baby-sitter.
