Save 1 CPR's medical professionals and emergency personnel travel to workplaces and homes or host in-facility training, equipping people with the life-saving skills of CPR and first aid. Classes tailored for kids help children stay calm during emergencies and keep their families safe, while coursework for healthcare workers certifies students in CPR and defibrilator use. Small classes ensure one-on-one instruction during important courses in bloodborne illnesses, emergency response, or low-dose oxygen administration. High-tech mannequins help trainees respond to simulated crises by flashing LEDs in response to proper compressions, and promising to name their first-born children after students following a successful CPR training.
