News from OCFS- Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) & First Aid Training Become a Requirement

On August 13, 2010 a law was passed that requires all child care providers to have at least one employee who holds a valid certificate in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid on the premise of the child care program during the program’s operating hours.  This includes family day care providers and substitutes. This law goes into effect on December 11, 2010. We will be adding many more First Aid and CPR classes to meet this demand! Click here for the official letter.
