ParamedicIn case you missed it, we sent out a press release on Tuesday morning regarding our mission to help people learn the skills that they can use to save the lives of family, friends, co-workers and others that may require CPR.

Here is the first part of the press release:

Everyone knows that taking a CPR class is a good idea, but nobody seems to have the time. Now you can learn CPR without leaving home.

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) September 23, 2008 — High quality video-based CPR training is now being offered for free to anyone with Internet access at

According to statistics provided by the American Heart Association, about 75 to 80 percent of all sudden cardiac arrests happen at home. Knowing what to do in the case of an emergency could mean the difference between life and death for a loved one.

Now Roy Shaw, a licensed paramedic and co-founder of, is determined to make this life saving training available to anyone who is willing to take the time to learn. According to Roy, “No price can be placed on the value of a life. The Internet is helping us break down the barriers that exist with classroom training.” Upon completing the program, Morgan Schäaf, a C.N.A. from Jacksonville, FL, wrote, “I found the training much more interesting and plausible than the traditional classroom experience. I’m going to recommend this to everybody I know!”

You can read more of the press release here or here.

If you’re not yet convinced that you should be well prepared to put your CPR skills to practice, we’ve found a story on the website “5 Minutes for Mom” called Have you ever had to use CPR? in which they talk about CPR review videos like the ones we have on ProCPR and ProHomeSafety.

They also have a story from a year prior called How Well Do You Know CPR? that details a scare that one of the writers had.  She talks about how she wants to know more than she does about CPR, and wants to stay on top of her things in case anything should happen again.

We send out a free weekly CPR refresher e-mail that you can use to watch one of our training videos every week to stay sharp in your training. Feel free to sign up to receive those.  If you want, you can also go through our full video training libraries both at, and where we also have water safety training and more.
