First Aid / CPR

First Response Environmental takes pride in having an excellent team of instructors which include certified instructors for the Canadian Red Cross and the Heart & Stroke Foundation, paramedics and firefighters.

Our Programs are WSIB approved and teach important lifesaving skills delivered by instructors with real world experience.

First Aid & CPR training is mandatory for employees in the workplace; but, unlike most other types of safety training, these skills and knowledge are also applicable to an individual’s daily life. This is why we teach people First Aid & CPR in easy-to-follow steps, empowering them to act on, prevent, and manage life’s emergencies.

Practical hands-on components are supported by a variety of training materials, based on course requirements, such as: Full colour course manuals, mannequins for practicing CPR, AED trainers, bandages, splinting materials, barrier devices, first aid kits, auto-injector trainers, inhalers etc. All Synergy programs are Canadian Red Cross programs and meet the latest International guidelines and follow strict quality control guidelines and procedures for content development, update and delivery.
