Why should I get CPR certified? How does CPR save lives? What is the importance of CPR training?

These are all questions you may be asking yourself and they are great questions we as Americans should be asking ourselves. At OC Safety CPR & First Aid Training, we provide high quality and professional training taught by first responders with real-life experience in these types of situations. It is extremely important to be certified as summer approaches, especially if you are a new parent.

Here are 5 reasons why you should get CPR certified:


1. Confidence and Peace of Mind

Knowing you have the ability to sustain a life until emergency personnel arrive is a powerful thing. Give yourself the confidence and relief that you can help in an emergency situation.

2. Be Different

There are not enough certified individuals who would be prepared in the case of an emergency. Only 15-30% of people who experience sudden cardiac arrests receive bystander CPR and this is largely due to people saying they were never trained. A few broken ribs from properly performing CPR, but giving a life to live is far more important than someone unsure of their abilities injuring the already unconscious individual without a chance of survival.

3. Ability to Save Lives

Hands-only CPR is also an option. It has been shown to be just as effective for adults who experience sudden cardiac arrest.

4. Gain Respect

Getting certified in one class can help you earn respect from your peers and give them added trust in you. You become a dependable, reliable, responsible acquaintance and may even serve as an inspiration for others to get certified as well.

5. Proper Preparedness

  • Over 85% of cardiac arrests occur at home. Lives can be saved by significant others, friends, and even children.

Hello 2015!


Goodbye 2014, and move over because 2015 is going to be a great year. Think of all the things you are looking forward to doing this year. Maybe a vacation, maybe you are expecting a child, maybe you graduate or begin school this year, maybe you plan to run your first marathon. Whatever the case, being prepared is extremely important, right? You wouldn’t get on a plane to a destination without having somewhere to stay, have a child without having its crib ready, walk the stage without your cap and gown or run your marathon without running shoes. (At least it’s not typically recommended). Why should being prepared in an emergency situation be any different?

At OC Safety CPR & First Aid Training, you will be trained by firefighters, paramedics, and RNs. Each have personally performed CPR and can teach the material hands on with a personal touch through their life experiences. We offer adult and pediatric scenarios in our training. Perfect for the whole family to learn.

Imagine running in that marathon and one of the runners drops down unconscious next to you. What if you were certified, prepared and able to save that person’s life?

That’s a pretty powerful thing.

Some of our students come to us for the first time and are interested in getting certified. Some of our students are returning to get recertified. The following are some examples of important cases where CPR certification would be extremely useful:

  • Babysitting
  • Daycare Employees
  • Adoption Agencies
  • Lifeguarding
  • New Parents
  • Healthcare Professionals
  • Sports Instruction

If you are in any of these fields or simply are interested in getting certified in the case of an emergency, please see below how to become a student.
