The ability to learn and be certified in CPR should not be limited due to affordability. Studies have shown for years that socioeconomics have impacted the chances of surviving cardiac arrest in black and hispanic communities, and low to middle income areas in comparison to wealthy and/or primarily white neighborhoods.
We offer free CPR and First Aid courses to communities where training is hard to obtain or too expensive. Getting certified in CPR and related courses will educate individuals on the importance of recognizing personal health concerns, sudden emergencies for others, lifesaving skills, and even potentially job opportunities where certification is needed!
Our training covers:
-Low Income and High Crime Communities
-Predominately Black, Hispanic, and Tribal Communities
Our training center is through our sister company, Community Responders LLC
CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
First Aid teaches individuals how to recognize a number of potentially life threatening medical and traumatic emergencies, and to provide care while waiting for emergency responders.
The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, and medical issues.
The number 1 preventable death after injury is bleeding. By learning how to STOP THE BLEED®, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques
First on the Scene (FOTS), developed by NAEMT and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), teaches the general public basic emergency response to life-threatening emergencies until EMS arrives on the scene.
