  • Most of us are familiar with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). Many of us are even CPR certified — or at least have been at some point in our lives.

  • Apparently, you're never too young to start learning.

  • This adorable baby girl is already a pro. She assesses the situation and scoots over to the CPR practice dummy. It even sounds as though she calls out "hello" to the dummy and checks for breathing. She then begins the cutest chest compressions anyone has ever seen. Of course, the next step is mouth-to-mouth, followed by more chest compressions.

  • Learning to keep our families safe starts at a young age. We teach our kids not to touch hot stoves, not to play with sharp objects and to think before they act. First aid and CPR are important parts of safety training for all members of the family. We can also be ready for larger disasters. You never know when power outages or severe weather will strike. Here are some things to consider:

    • Do you keep current 72-hour kits for each family member that are ready to "grab-and-go?"

    • Do you have a first aid kit with bandages, antiseptic, antibiotic ointment and other basics?

    • Do you have a three month's supply of food and water for all members of your family in case of emergency?

    • Do you keep emergency numbers handy and make sure all family members know where to find them?

    • Have you practiced fire, earthquake and other emergency drills with your family so everyone knows what to do and expect in those situations?

    • Last but not least, are members of your family CPR certified?
