This toolkit is meant to accompany the Safe Sleep: Preventing Suffocation for First Responders PowerPoint presentation training developed by the Pediatric Advisory Council for Emergency Services (PACES) within the Bureau of EMS & Trauma System at the Arizona Department of Health Services.
This toolkit is meant to be used as a resource at the discretion of each first responder agency that participates in the Safe Sleep training. Agencies who participate in the Safe Sleep: Preventing Suffocation presentation are not required to utilize the scenarios, checklist, or crib cards. Rather, these tools are included as a resource in the event that respective agencies or individual first responders are interested in learning additional information or having access to additional resources.
The information in the presentation and toolkit may be used as much or as little as is practical in the field or day-to-day work flow.
