About Us

Our History

First Response provides CPR, First Aid & Fire Safety training to clients across Georgia and South Carolina. We believe training should be relevant, informative, and fun! Research shows that people learn best when they are relaxed, so our instructors strive to keep the classes stress-free and engaging. Feedback from our clients consistently shows that they not only enjoy our class, they learn something new–even for folks that have taken the class many times before.

With over 23 years of experience partnering with child care and eldercare professionals, we tailor our classes to meet your specific needs. We are not “one size fits all”!

Our instructors are certified by the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) for CPR & First Aid. For Fire Safety, all instructors have completed the nationally accredited Fire & Life Safety Instructor 40 hour course and are certified by the Georgia Fire Commissioners office. Many of our instructors have a background in education and they share their real-life experiences in their classes.

We continuously strive to improve and keep our classes up to date with the most current national guidelines.

Our goal is for you to be confident in the skills learned!

Patti was great, very informative and retaught me things I’ve learned the wrong way through life. I appreciate her for her time.


Mr. Matthew Enser was an amazing instructor!! His level of expertise and knowledge of First Aid, CPR and Fire Safety was spot on and I feel more confident in those skills as well. Truly enjoyed this informative training. 


I really enjoyed my hybrid online CPR, First Aid, and AED training with First Response. My instructor helped me along the way and helped if I had any questions. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for CPR, First Aid or AED Training in Georgia or South Carolina.


Tom was a great instructor and kept me engaged after a work day! I also learned several tips and facts. Many thanks to Tom and the FRS team. 


I am sooooo happy and knowledged after taking the fire and safety class. That is the very BEST class ever in my 64th years of living on this earth!!!!. The instructor was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!.....THE VERY BEST!!!!!!!!!


My First Aid/CPR class was led by Tom and he’s the best instructor I’ve ever had. What I appreciated most is that He’s prompt (arrived on time) and is very engaging- he really kept it interesting by sharing personal anecdotes that were entertaining and educational at the same time. Tom’s teaching style is great because he made it easier to remember lots of very important info by telling stories that stick with you. I highly recommend. Thanks Tom!


Instructors were very clear and easy to understand. Made sure everyone understood the content we were learning, and answered every question. Would recommend to everyone! Learned so many things I was not aware of.


Tom was wonderful. He was very informative and a great instructor. He made sure each group did each technique that was taught correctly. Everyone really enjoyed his teaching. Thank you!


Ms. Laura was amazing, she was very precise and informative. I appreciate the knowledge shared. Continue to educate on the importance of safety.


I learned a lot of things that I did not concerning fires. I didn’t know batteries in a junk drawer could ignite and start a fire!


Attended First Aid and CPR classes today. Great experience, excellent instructor! Entertaining and instructional at the same time. My attention never wavered. Thank You.


The class was amazing. Mrs.Patti was so informative. She was very open and honest with our class about her experiences and how they really are beneficial in every environment. I would definitely recommend her, and take her class again, truly was a wonderful experience!
