Ten young people, aged 11 to 13, spent all of last Friday in the Payson Fire Department's Safe Sitter class.
Pupils learned all about the business of babysitting, from what to do when a child chokes, to entertainment ideas for different ages.
Each girl received a backpack with a how-to folder.
Graduates were Alyssa Huskey, Mira Richey, Calli Brumbaugh, Bryce Brumbaugh, Jenna Wolf, Bella Barr, Chelsea Park, Alexis Hagler, Ashley Harold and Katrina Paulison.
Instructors were Vince Palandri, Monica Savage and Bill Neal.
The class would have cost $40 per person, but the Mogollon Health Alliance sponsored half the cost for each of the attendees.
