3. First Aid Training Courses

* The Japanese Red Cross

The Red Cross gives both standard and short-term training courses. It also conducts training sessions at your site if you have a minimum number of participants. Obtain details by phone.

* Local Fire Stations

Your local fire station conducts training in lifesaving skills. On-site training is available if you have a minimum number of participants. Check by phone first.

** In April, the nursery staff of Mommy took a lifesaving training course given by a local fire station. (The last time we had similar training was August of last year.) It came as a shock to me that I had forgotten so much of it, including the techniques of chest compressions. It goes without saying that you and your staff should get first aid training periodically. Additionally, in order not to forget what you have learned, you should make it a habit to view video about artificial respiration and practice CPR on a training manikin. Because I strongly feel the need for receiving such training on a routine basis, I am passing on to you the above information on training aids.

8. Mommy's Non-Life Insurance Underwriter

Mr.Nakamura (no relation) of Hiroshima City, agent for The Douwa Fire & Marine Insurance Co., is very knowledgeable about non-life insurance policies for childcare facilities (institutional liability insurance, casualty insurance, personal liability insurance, food poisoning insurance, etc.). He is ready and willing to answer your questions, whether or not you have purchased a policy through him. You need not be located in Hiroshima Prefecture to purchase a policy through this agency.
New insurance was made in September, 1997.

* The nature of coverage and the amount of insurance vary depending on which non-life insurance company underwrites your policy. I therefore strongly suggest that you check the content of the policy which you now have. It is also critical that you make sure that you have paid your premiums.

Phone: 010-350-1769 (Nakamura Insurance Agency)

Prepared:  May 1997
