Meet Ruth

Your Instructor

I have been teaching First Aid and CPR since 1997.  I was an Emergency Medical Technician then upgraded to Mobile Intensive Care Paramedic.  I started this company after my precious Christian (age 6) was killed by a street racer.  It was the first aider’s that kept my family alive until the life flight chopper arrived to transport them to the area trauma center.  It is in Christian’s honor that I dedicate my company.  If I can teach one person to save a life as precious as the one we lost, then I have done my job.
