CPR - AED - First Aid Training
FACT: 360,000 people will die this year in the United States from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. That's around 1,000 people every day! Would you know what to do?
Our certification classes are taught by Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) with over 50 years of combined street experience! You get classes that are not only fun and interesting, but real!
CPR: Cardio Pulmonary Resucitation is the pumping and blowing you do to help keep oxygnated blood flowing through the body when someone is in cardiac arrest.
It's easy to learn and perform! A couple of hours of your time could save someone's life. And that's a great feeling!!!
AED: Also known as the 'shocky thing', the Automated External Defibrillator increases the survival rate and is easy to learn and use. You can find them in supermarkets, stores, schools, private industry and even in homes.
Using an AED can increase a person's survival rate to 60-80% -- up from the low of 8% when CPR is done alone.
Basic First Aid: Whether at work, home or play, people do get hurt.
Learn the basics for falls, breaks, bleeding, burns, shock, chest pains, diabeties, strokes and other medical emergencies.
We teach classes at your location and even private homes. Any time, day or night. So why not learn how to save someone's life today ... maybe a friend maybe a family member!
DID YOU KNOW?
How long can the brain survive without oxygen?
On average, the brain can survive without oxygen for 4-6 minutes. After 8-10, brain cells begin to die, 10-12 minutes–irreversible brain damage...
The national average for EMS response time from dispatch to on-location is 12-15 minutes.
What is the survival rate if only CPR is started within the first few minutes?
With CPR alone, the average survival rate is only 8% - that's 1 out of every 12.5 people!
Through the proper and quick use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), the survival rate can jump up to 60-80%!!!
What is Compression Only CPR and is it a certifcation course?
Compression only CPR is when you push on the chest without any ventilations. The good news: more people are willing to do this if they don't have to put their mouth on a stranger's. And there is some residual O2 exchange in the process.
Compression only CPR prior to EMS arrival helps to increase the survival rate!
FYI: We do not teach this as a certification course.
How should I dress?
Please dress in comfortable clothes. Remember we will be working on the floor and bending over, so low cut tops and hip huggers may "show" more than you would like.
How long are the classes?
The class time varies by the number of participants, environment and level of training. First Aid will usually take 1.5 to 2 hours, professional CPR about 3 hours and approximately 2 hours for Adult CPR.
I have a bad back/knees, can I still attend?
Yes, you can certainly attend. For practice purposes, we can train you using a table, with the understanding that in a real life situation, you will only be able to perform CPR correctly on the floor.
