EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE (EFR)


Someone suddenly needs emergency medical aid. Do you know how to help? Maybe it’s time to learn. In as little as eight hours, Emergency First Response can show you how to save someone's life using basic first aid and CPR.

Getting certified in First Aid and CPR has never been so simple. You will learn the same emergency aid techniques used by paramedics and doctors, but at a layman’s level. In addition to CPR, you will learn how to administer first aid properly while effectively using the most up-to-date methods. And, remember that Emergency First Response meets PADI’s Rescue Diver requirements for CPR.The Automated External Defibrillator Training teaches you how to provide care for a person who experiences sudden cardiac arrest in any setting.
