“I am a believer that everyone is a first responder.  It is up to us as individuals to prepare and train to protect ourselves and our loved ones in an incident.  From personal protection to emergency first aid we are responsible to ensure that our families are protected and safe when the time comes.”

“Growing up and living in small towns has shown to me that we are responsible for the safety of ourselves and our families.  Knowing that help isn’t always going to be there right away when you need it is why I believe everyone should receive training.  Being able to educate others on how to take responsibility for the safety of themselves and their loved ones is something that I am passionate about.”
