Powerful, Interactive Learning
For more than 40 years, the Heimlich Maneuver® has been used to help save choking victims. Heimlich Heroes™ is an interactive, educational program designed for kids ages seven and older. After this training, students will know: the signs of choking, how and when to respond with the Heimlich Maneuver, and ways to prevent or minimize the risk of choking.
We use an interactive approach to learning. Our video training is accompanied by age-appropriate note-taking tools. And kids LOVE the hands-on practice with our specially designed training dolls.
