Northwest Fire has a two-day offering

When is a young person old enough to watch children? Age 12? 14?

How about after completion of a class that teaches what to expect and how to entertain different ages, as well as CPR, First Aid, and fire extinguisher skills?

Teens looking to begin babysitting careers can pick up the basics and more this summer at a babysitting class offered by Northwest Fire District.

The two-day class is set for Tuesday and Wednesday, June 16 and 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Students must be at least 11 years old and should bring a sack lunch, a release said.

A registration fee of $20 must be paid in advance to reserve a spot.

For additional information, or to register, call Northwest Fire Life Safety Service at 887-1010.
