Safety Magnets

Years ago, I took a CPR class for work. I even had a little card in my wallet that said I knew how to perform CPR.

But, if an emergency happened and I suddenly had to recall that information from the recesses of my brain, I would be in trouble. I am sure panic would take over and I would completely forget what to do.

And I know I am not alone!

In fact, this is the very reason two Arizona moms, Chris Stevens and Melissa Weisberg, developed, Safety Magnets:

While there is an abundance of first aid information on the web, in books, and from other resources, in an emergency, you need help fast. When an emergency happens, most people don’t have time to find that often misplaced first aid book. What you need is a convenient source of accurate information that everyone in the household can easily locate in an emergency. What better place for that information than a magnet on your refrigerator or inside your medicine cabinet?

Safety Magnets are 5″ x 7″ refrigerator magnets that list first aid steps on what to do in common medical emergencies. They are available in 5 different magnets:

  • Child CPR
  • Infant CPR
  • Infant Choking
  • Infant / Child / Adult Choking
  • Poisoning / Burns

  • Infant CPR
  • Child CPR
  • Iinfant / Child / Adult Choking

This version has a write-on/wipe-off wet-erase marker with a convenient area to write your important and emergency phone numbers.

The price for an individual magnetic memo board is $5.95 and there are discounts for volume purchases.

Safety Magnets are designed with fund raising and company promotion in mind.

These unique magnets are the perfect way to raise money for school, teams, church trips etc. No more fattening chocolates or cookie dough to sell – instead your fundrasing can be centered around a healthy, life saving product.

And instead of putting your company logo on a calendar or notepad, you can use Safety Magnets to continually keep your name at the forefront of your customers minds.

I personally love the Magnetic Memo Board which includes Infant CPR, Child CPR, Infant / Child / Adult Choking and a spot for emergency numbers. If I am out and my babysitter needs emergency information quickly, this is what I want on my fridge.

If you want to enter to win one of ten Safety Magnetic Memo Boards that we are giving away, just leave a comment at this post.

This contest is open to both US and Canadian shipping addresses.
We will announce the winners on February 16th.

    Oh Please, me, me! I have a two year old that puts anything and everything into her mouth!!!! It’s not an If but a WHEN she is going to choke!
    Thanks for sharing,
    ~Lana B.~

    This is a very cool idea! Count me in.

    And–you’re right, you are not alone. I have been certified/re-certified for 16 years and I don’t think I would be able to do it in an emergency either.

  3. says

    It’s been over 10 years since I took my First Aid/CPR class and although I remember some of it, I’d be lost if I had to use those skills! Enter me, please!

  4. says

    I took CPR when I was a daycare worker and I know as soon as I walked out the classroom door I forgot everything I learned! I would love to have one of these magnets on my refrigerator!

  5. Sunshine says

    This is JUST what I need. I am so excited. My 2 year old daughter has breath holding spells and passes out on me ALL the time. I’m always so scared!

  6. says

    I have to be both regular CPR certified and Trach CPR certified for Parker. I always stress that in an emergency I would forget what to do.

    I’d love to be entered.

    And…..have you guys ever thought about having a Special Needs contributor to 5 Minutes For Mom? I’m sure there are a lot of Moms with kids with Special Needs that read your blog.

    They could write on what’s new out there, issues facing Mom’s with Special Needs kids, fun things to do to help reach IEP goals, etc.

    It would also be a great way to provide an experience base for those who DON’T have a child with Special Needs.

    A monthly column could be an excellent advocacy tool. Especially with your readership.

    Just a thought. :)

  7. Kelli says

    i would really love one of these.. I am BLS certified and feel this would be great in my home for my child and mom.

    Thanks for posting!

  8. Anne says

    What a brilliant idea! I was always fearful of my kids choking, and it happened a couple of times. This would be great for my grandbabies mom!

  9. says

    I would truly love to have this. It’s been years since I’ve taken a cpr class and with 6 boys you never know what they’re going to try! Thanks again for another wonderful contest!

  10. says

    I would love to join. (i’m not from the US nor Canada but I have relatives and friends who live there…=) Hope I am still eligible to join.

    Honestly, this is such a very wonderful idea especially for parents and baby caretakers out there.

    These safety magnets will be very convenient and life-saving in times of emergencies. We all know how it is when we encounter dilemmas like this. We tend to get nervous, anxious, rattled and far from being focused due to not knowing what to do. We need something handy.

    This is very helpful for me since I have a 3-month old baby boy. Doing CPR is life-saving.

  11. Sarah says

    I can only think that I’ve dodged a bullet so far with my curious toddler! She sticks EVERYTHING in her mouth and so far she’ll spit it out if I ask her to and if she starts to choke it’s something little… I think this is a great idea!

  12. Amy W. says

    Please pick me! I took a CPR class before my little one was allowed any finger food, but he has a tendancy to gag and just the other day almost choked. I was beside myself that despite the training, I’d forgotten what to do. Luckily, he wasn’t actually choking. That magnet would literally be a lifesaver. Please, please, please…

  13. Cindi Hoppes says

    Hello, This would be fantastic to own! I have had small ones for the refrigerator, but I have never seen one this large and visible. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks very much…..Cindi

  14. says

    Looks very handy. When we moved into our house, we found an old, 1960’s era poster from a local company showing the Heimlich maneuver taped inside our pantry cabinet. This is the same idea, made a little handier. :-)

  15. Jenn S. says

    This is a great idea. I just finished a CPR/First Aid class but not sure if I could remember it in an emergency situation. Enter me please.

  16. rachel says

    If I don’t win this, I’m buying it. I have two small children at home and I always stress out thinking about “what ifs”! I was certified, but I haven’t taken a lesson since my teens.

  17. Lori Constein-Bauer says

    Oh, that would be so handy to have around the house. I’m a single mother who works full time. Sometimes I have no choice but to leave my 14 year old to help me look after her two younger siblings for a few minutes, while I finish up work and of course, when I am doing many household chores. Although my eldest is very responsible, indeed, she as well as I, would love to have these medical safety reminders in case if one of my younger children are in any harm or danger. Please put me down for these magnets. They are a true lifesaver!

  18. says

    I just re-upped my CPR, but I know that the grandmas don’t know CPR, or at least, they haven’t recertified recently, so I would love one of these. Thanks.

  19. Jenny M says

    I can relate! To fufill a requirement, I once took a cpr internet class- a half hour and 25 dollars later, I was certified- but not that knowledgeable- this sounds like a great prize!

  20. says

    This would come in very handy! I can hear the conspiracy whispers already between my 4 month old and my 2 year old… goodness knows what they’ll get into!

  21. Adrienne Gordon says

    Great idea, we have already had to call poison control and my six year old son had to call 911 when my husband passed out

  22. Sheri says

    I would love to enter for this. I also agree with the comment about info for parents of special needs kids. I homeschool my kids who include one with special needs and though I am always out there looking, it would be great to see ideas here too.

  23. says

    that is such a great idea! I have been First Aid/CPR trained for a few years now but I would love to keep this info handy for anyone who could utilize it! thanks!

  24. Hetal G says

    I would love to have them. Whoever has thought of this idea- Magnets, is wonderful. I am a refrigerator magnet junkie:)

  25. says

    If this is still open to enter, please enter my name.

    As I type I am rinting the fundraiser info to take to the board. It sounds like a good idea and it IS better than cookie dough.

  26. jessie says

    i have a little one on the way and this would be great to have handy (hopefully we wouldn’t have to use the cpr, but it is good to have this valuable info).

  27. Tonya says

    I would LOVE these! MY 5 1/2 month old son chocked on a 1 inch loge piece of his teething biscuit and I panicked. I was fortunate it dislodged without me having to call 911. This would be a great necessity for those moments!

  28. kristina jones says

    I would love to have these. My autistic son doesn’t understand danger, so we have called poison control many times.

  29. Debbie Criss says

    My kids are getting bigger, but I starting to get grandkids. There’s alot more new techiques these days. Please let me win.

  30. Paula Diekhoff says

    (I’m going to mention this to my husband as a promotional item for his business.) I have taken CPR courses for the last 10 years, and have often thought “what if I can’t remember what to do?” I would love to have the magnets or board, as they are portable, vital information!

  31. Brandy says

    A great idea. I agree with other posts, every household should have something similar to this. Would love to win, thanks for the giveaway! 😀

  32. traci corson says

    What a great idea. I have 3 baby showers to attend in the next few months and I’ll have to pass these on. Thanks 4 the opportunity to win : )

  33. says

    Don’t know if you know this or not, but the phone number that is for poison control on these magnets takes you to an inappropriate hotline. My friend learned then when trying to call poison control for something her son got into. This could have turned into a disaster. Just thought you’d want to know.

  34. says

    The number at one time was correct for Poison Control but unbeknownst to us, they changed the number. (In fact, the old number 888-222-1212 is still unfortunately found on many prominient web sites.) We have since taken the number off all of our products and replaced it with Call 911 and we have informed the National Poison Control Center that their old number is still out there. We have also alerted as many customers as we can with this information. Pete

  35. Ashley Edens says

    I am doing a speech on infant CPR and would love to have one for my speech! I also have two children and would love to have this in my home.
