Choke Saver Training

Learning how to recognize someone is choking, and knowing the correct techniques to alleviate choking can be a lifesaving skill. Woman Choking

Our Choke Saver course is approximately 2 hours and will show how to identify someone who is choking, techniques to manage choking emergencies in conscious and unconscious Adults, Children, and Infants. We discuss what questions a 9-1-1 dispatcher will be asking, and help the dispatcher may provide in this and other emergencies. We also touch on the legal considerations that come with providing aid.
