Patti Phillips

CPR, First Aid, and Fire Safety Instructor

After a long career in telecommunications and education, Patti started with First Response in August 2016. She leads classes on CPR, First Aid, and Fire Safety.

“The value of these skills cannot be overstated. The first time I received a message from a student outlining how she had saved her husband following a heart attack, I was completely overwhelmed. Every subsequent story documenting how the classes allowed someone to save a life (or lives) is equally humbling. From choking to cardiac events to escaping a fire, each recounting reminds me of the importance of these programs.” Patti

Away from First Response, Patti loves to travel, hike, read (voraciously) and spend time with family (good restaurant suggestions are welcome!)
