Nothing gets a mom’s heart pumping like the thrilling scenes from FOX’s show 9-1-1. Man, talk about feeling all the feels. I love that show, have you seen it? If not, you are in luck because the 2-Night Premiere Event is coming up September 23rd & 24th at 9/8c on FOX. The Resident on FOX (right before 9-1-1) premieres on Monday, September 24th at 8/7c only.
To gear up for the new season, FOX & SheKnows Media invited Ella and me to a private screening + CPR Class. The night was filled with heart-pounding scenes and a new found knowledge of the importance for parents to be prepared and educated. Are you ready for a disaster?
Are You Prepared for a Disaster? A VIP Event + CPR Class with FOX’s 9-1-1 & The Resident
A Lesson in Safety
“Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month?” Those were the first words spoken by our CPR class instructor at FOX’s Private Screening + CPR Class on the UCLA Campus last week. Followed by “raise your hand if you have a go bag, cash, and first aid kit handy.” Would you have been able to answer “YES!” to either of those questions? I sure couldn’t.
As a mom, I fret over all sorts of ways my children could get injured on the playground, at school, and playing sports, but one thing I have completely failed to do is understand the potential threats at home and in my car while I am present and I am definitely not as prepared as I could be if a natural disaster were to strike (we do live in CA, aka Earthquake, country).
Our instructor updated Ella and I, plus the room full of moms that were in attendance on the new updates to the SIDS guidelines and rear-facing car seat recommendations- they are now recommending children face rear as long as possible. We also discussed the dangers of pools and drownings before moving onto the life-saving lessons on CPR.
One of the most valuable takeaways for me was hearing that doing NOTHING is what kills while doing less than perfect CPR Saves Lives! The reason being is those first few moments are crucial in protecting the victim’s brain and if a family member or friend can administer CPR before help arrives it increases the victim’s chances of survival and recovery.
We went home with a first aid kit + some other goodies, but most importantly I went home with a new sense of confidence, as did Ella, and we quickly informed the rest of the fam about the techniques we had learned. We also went over safety drills in the house and I stocked up on disaster preparedness items.
JOIN ME- Tune in to the Season Premiere Events!!!
I am a sucker for a good drama and season 1 of 9-1-1 had me hooked from the get-go. Between the heart-stopping scenes the first responders are thrust into to the love stories and issues going on in the characters’ personal stories, I leave the couch needing more each week. And, now FOX has added two new characters who I cannot wait to meet, the first being played by the popular actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and the second a young hottie by the name of Ryan Guzman (you may know him from “Notorious” or “Heroes Reborn”).
I hope you will join me and tune into the 2-Night Premiere Event of 9-1-1 September 23rd & 24th at 9/8c only on FOX.
Speaking of tuning in, have you watched The Resident?
It’s a medical drama starring Matt Czuchry (“The Good Wife”) about the lives of medical students during their residency. But, the reason I get glued to the screen is that I need to know what will happen between Dr. Conrad and Nic (one of the nurses). Get a dose of what I am talking about in the preview below.
You can catch the season premiere of The Resident on FOX (right before 9-1-1) on Monday, September 24th at 8/7c.
