City of Oldsmar Fire Rescue Babysitting Safety
This 4-hour training program stresses the priority to keep you and the children you care for safe. Babysitting is not just "watching" the children, but being responsible for their safety and well being. When you are caring for a child, you are taking care of the family's most prized possession. Everything in their home and your own home can be replaced, except a child. This course is for young people providing babysitting and child care services. Oldsmar Fire Rescue instructors use in-house program materials to deliver the training. Each student is provided with course materials and will receive a Fire Department certificate upon successful completion of the post-course examination. The cost for this course is $15 per person.

Fire Extinguisher Hands-On Training
This 1-1/2 hour training course teaches students the proper selection and use of various portable fire extinguishers. The course is available to citizens or business employees and can be done at the fire station or at an outside location. The course involves some classroom instruction and hands-on use of fire extinguishers utilizing a propane gas fed "live fire" fire extinguisher training simulator. Oldsmar Fire Rescue fire prevention personnel will provide the instruction. At this time, there is no charge for this training.
