There’s a growing proficiency gap in the level of preparedness needed to assist in a medical emergency. Filling this gap will require innovative strategies that equip the lay public with life saving first aid in order to strengthen the chain of survival in those critical moments that matter.
Christmas is almost here! How about simple acts of kindness to spread the Christmas cheer? Whether you work with members of the public, or are a student getting ready for Christmas break or perhaps a new mom looking to bring out the magic of Christmas for your loved ones. Consider doing your part in helping others experience more magical moments in life.
Learning to save a life is a gift to the community that says, “I’ve got your back, I want you to experience more of life’s precious moments!”
This Christmas, as we celebrate the gift of life, let’s discover the joy and wonder of life that Christmas brings.
Kudos to our latest Heartsaver class, for their commitment to helping others enjoy life’s precious moments!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas!! Filled with lots of joy and cheer!!

As the situation unfolds, what ensues is a waiting game to see if…
Do you have deteriorating customer experiences where your customers are constantly reporting being on the receiving end of rudeness from your workforce? Are you experiencing high employee turnover?
