EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE

Creating Confidence with Care

Emergency First Response (EFR) is one of the fastest-growing international CPR, AED and first aid training organizations. EFR courses follow the emergency considerations and protocols as developed by the members of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). Members include American Heart Association (AHA), European Resuscitation Council (ERC), Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), New Zealand Resuscitation Council (NZRC), Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC), Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa (RCSA), Inter American Heart Foundation (IAHF), Resuscitation Council of Asia (RCA – current members include Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan).

The Emergency First Response course is several sections :

  • Primary Care (CPR)
  • Secondary Care (First Aid)
  • Care For Children
  • Automated Electronic Defibrillator (AED)

In our normal training, we include both of the sections for your training, with inclusion of Emergency Oxygen use and Automated Electronic Defibrillator (AED). We believe that this life saving skills should be learned by everyone, and we may never know when these skills are valuable.
