First Aid and Hotline Introduction

First Aid Training

First Aid Training

First aid is the immediate response to an injury or illness. Every employee who works with students is required to have First Aid Training, and receive updated training every three (3) years.

New employees are informed of the first aid training requirement when they are hired. The employee then attends a First Aid Training Workshop at the next available date. These workshops are repeated several times during the year or the employee may attend a workshop held by an outside agency.

Hotline Introduction

The Claremont Unified School District provides a Safety Hotline (909.398.0664) for the purpose of reporting any concern which may jeopardize the safety of any staff member or student. Additionally, as a service to adolescents and their families, the Claremont Youth Partnership provides a list of telephone numbers to provide assistance in areas such as:

  • Crisis Help Line
  • Claremont Hate Crimes
  • District Safety Hotline
  • Drug Help Line
  • Suicide Help Line

Most of these numbers are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Otherwise, a recording will answer with helpful information. To access this list on the Web go to the following URL:
