We appreciate your interest in our Safe Sitter classes.  Due to modifications in program resourcing, Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One will only be offering the Safe Sitter course in the summer months.  Please follow our social media channels or look to our website for updates on when the next course will be available. 

A great option in the meantime is the “Babysitter Boss” series on You Tube, we use them in our lessons and they cover a TON of excellent babysitting information.
