Did you know that more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur out of the hospital each year? You could help save one of these lives! We teach public CPR courses, taught to the American Heart Association (AHA) curriculum. This course is intended for anyone who needs to know how to perform CPR and other basic life support skills. Participants who pass this course will receive an AHA certification card upon completion.
Stop the Bleed
Interested in learning more about how to help in an emergency? We offer a 'Stop the Bleed' class where attendees learn the basics of bleeding control. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action, encouraging bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
Fire Extinguisher Training
This hands-on class is offered to groups who schedule in advance. Different types of fire are discussed, as well as how to choose the correct fire extinguisher. A digital fire simulator lets users experience fire extinguisher operations while remaining indoors. This is a safe, smoke-free training.
Fire Safety Presentations
Our team instructs the community on all types of skills necessary to protect themselves and their families by responding promptly and effectively when confronted with a fire or life safety hazards. We are available to teach valuable fire safety and preparedness tips, or conduct an equipment show and tell or demonstration for your school, community group or organization.
