Hi! I’m Gail, I am an American Heart Association CPR and First Aid Instructor and an American and Safety and Health Institute Training Center. I began teaching almost 20 years ago and started Coastal CPR and First Aid, LLC in 2009. I am a strong advocate of the benefits of early CPR, early use of an AED and the help & assistance you can provide to someone who is ill or injured by using basic First Aid skills.
Coastal CPR & First Aid, LLC is a small woman-owned business providing CPR AED, BLS, First Aid and Safety instruction. My DUNS # is 07-925-2004. I am registered through the NH Government Contracting Assistance Center (NH GCAC).
At Coastal CPR and First Aid I strongly believe that anyone can make a difference in someone’s life. I offer AHA and ASHI courses which are very practical and hands on. Everyone leaves a class confident in the skills that have been taught.
In addition to teaching for my own business and training center, I am also available to teach for other training centers, organizations, municipalities, and government entities.
If you are a training center or site with a client in my geographic area I can provide your course for you.
Organizations, government agencies, municipalities can contact me for bids/quotes, or to schedule a class.
I am credentialed to provide programs through:
The American Heart Association
The American Safety & Health Institute
The American Red Cross
I try to make CPR classes accessible, easy to schedule and easy to attend. I provide accommodation for anyone with physical and learning disabilities providing that they can perform the skills when needed. Hands-on skills practice is part of every course I teach. I also provide courses at convenient times and locations for parents who may need to bring their children along. Lack of childcare should not be a barrier to learning CPR and First Aid.
How did Coastal CPR and First Aid happen? It began as a small idea to earn a part-time income after leaving work full-time to take care of my growing family. I had a previous part-time career as a call Firefighter/EMT-Intermediate and had been a NH State EMS Practical Exam Evaluator. I am currently a mom of 4, a CPR and First Aid Instructor for almost 20 years and an ASHI Training Center. I volunteer with my children and in my community and I enjoy teaching as a way to continue to give back to my community by teaching the skills needed to make a difference.
