Do your servers and staff know what to do in a choking emergency?

It can happen in an instant. One minute your patron is enjoying their deli purchase or restaurant meal. The next they’re gasping for air, turning blue, and motioning to their throat.  


Did You Know?
  • Without oxygen, brain damage can occur in four minutes
  • The average 9-1-1 response time is 11 minutes 
  • Complete blockage of the airway may lead to death
  • Choking is a true medical emergency that requires fast, knowledgeable action

Posters are visual and provide a proven learning resource. Make sure your restaurant and deli employees know how to properly perform the Heimlich Maneuver.

It can save a life.

Posters teach everyone the proper technique. Prepare your staff to respond in a choking emergency. Order your posters today!

State Regulations

Compliance for Florida and other states indicates that all public places — serving ready-to-eat food — must display a choking safety poster. This includes restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, resorts, theme parks, cruise ships and more.

And, even if your state doesn’t yet have this regulation, it just makes sense to have a poster available for employees to view.  

Be a hero and buy a poster! You could save a life!   


"I saw the safety procedure on the door at the Dairy Queen and remembered the illustrations on the poster."
