Emergency First Response®
Creating Confidence to Care sm
Emergency First Response is the
fastest-growing international CPR, AED and first aid training
organization. With more than 31,000 instructors worldwide, Emergency
First Response is backed by 36 years of experience in the development
and delivery of instructional courses, training materials and
educational curricula. Emergency First Response courses have gained
widespread international acceptance.
Emergency First Response's course curricula are based on patient care standards as published in the American Heart Association Guidelines 2005 Standards for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, and the consensus view of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Working Group of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). ILCOR is an international standards group representing most of the world's major resuscitation organizations.
Focused on training the lay rescuer, the Emergency First Response approach to training builds confidence in lay rescuers and increases their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency by teaching them the skills they need in a non-stressful learning environment. Participants are also given as much practice as necessary to master and retain these skills.
