Heart disease and stroke are the second and third leading causes of death in Canada with a Canadian dying of a heart condition every 7 minutes. Knowing what to do in such unfortunate cases is very important as every minute is crucial when someone is in cardiac arrest. If a person cannot intervene in 4 minutes after the cardiac arrest then the cells in the brain begin to die, while 6 minutes of non-intervention lead to irreversible damages.

Because a basic knowledge of first aid can save lives, First Aid Pro now offers courses including 3 basic and easy to remember steps to follow in any emergency. Their “Check, Call, Care” intervention guide teaches people how to recognize a heart attack or a stroke, when to call the ambulance, when they should or should not perform CPR, and what is a good CPR chest compression.

Allan Cabatic, the head instructor of First Aid Pro and a full-time professional firefighter and First Responder Instructor, is always up-to-date and uses his own real-life experience to provide clear instruction and practical application of skills. Even after many years of training experience, he constantly strives to offer a fun, professional and a practical environment, where all learners feel comfortable regardless of background or physical capabilities.

A satisfied client said: “The team at First Aid Pro is amazing! The instructors not only know their stuff, but they have years of real-life application! Allan makes learning first aid an amazing experience, full of laughter and learning. Highly recommend!”
