Hi! I’m Gail, I am the Founder and Owner of Coastal CPR and First Aid. We are a National AHA BLS Training Center, an American Red Cross Licensed Training Provider, and a Health and Safety Institute Training Center. I began teaching over 20 years ago and started Coastal CPR and First Aid, LLC officially 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. We are an SBA designated Woman Owned Small Business. Our DUNS # is 07-925-2004. We are registered through the NH Procurement Technical Assistance Center (NH PTAC).
At Coastal CPR and First Aid we strongly believe that anyone can make a difference in someone’s life. we offer courses that are very practical and hands on. Everyone leaves a class confident in the skills that have been taught.
In addition to teaching at our Training Center, our instructors are 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, we can provide your course for you.
Organizations, government agencies, municipalities can contact us for bids/quotes, or to schedule a class.
We are credentialed to provide programs through:
The American Heart Association
The American Safety & Health Institute
The Health and Safety Institute
The American Red Cross
We try to make CPR classes accessible, easy to schedule and easy to attend. We can provide reasonable 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 we teach. We 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 Gail left work full-time to take care of her growing family. She had a previous part-time career as a call Firefighter/EMT-Intermediate and had been a NH State EMS Practical Exam Evaluator. Gail is a mom of 4, a CPR and First Aid Instructor for over 20 years and the Training Center Coordinator. She volunteers with her children and in her community and enjoys teaching as a way to continue to give back to her community by teaching the skills needed to make a difference.
