Why Use First Response Safety Training?

Why Us

Thinking About Using First Response for Your Training?

First Response is a one stop shop for all your training needs. We provide CPR, First Aid, AED, Fire Safety, BLS and Bloodborne Pathogens training across Georgia and South Carolina. We come to your facility at whatever time is convenient for you and your team. We also provide online blended options that meet Bright From The Start and South Carolina Endeavours Guidelines. These are great for those that don’t have enough for the minimum or just want the added convenience of doing it at home.

We Know Your Needs

Over our over 24 years of experience, we have designed our classes specifically for who we serve. Meaning, you learn about what is important for your industry, and we understand the needs of your industry. We work with a wide range of customers in all industries, but we have a special expertise with Childcares, Senior Livings, and Private Schools. Over a 2-year period, we will teach in about 2,500 childcare facilities and about 2,000 elder care facilities. However, we work with many other types of industries and we will have a course that will work great for you.

Since we teach in many facilities and have over 179 years of combined experience across our instructors, you get a much higher level course than if you tried to do it yourself. We bring in ideas, stories, and experiences from across the areas we teach, which helps improve the overall level of the training. Which, in turn, improves how your team will respond in case of an emergency.

What Our Clients Think

Not only do we provide this training to so many great clients, but we have received great feedback from our clients over the years with over 1,474+ five star Google Reviews. 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.

We Save You Time

At First Response, we know how busy you are, so we take on much of the administrative tasks associated with safety training. We do this by keeping a record of your certification cards over the time they are valid for in case you need a replacement cards. Replacement Cards are always free even if they took a class with us at another facility. As well as dealing with the certification systems that can be very time consuming, so you don’t have to. Especially with the new and difficult Fire Safety System in Georgia. Where we handle all that headache for you.

We Save You Money

We have many affordable options to meet your training needs. We believe helping people become heros is our mission, so we work hard to keep our prices low so cost isn’t a barrier. With our classes starting at $25 a person you get a high-quality training that fits your needs at the price you can afford.

Since we teach in so many facilities across Georgia and South Carolina, if you have a new team member that took the class with us and their card is still valid, we can get you their certificate even if the old job still has the original. That way, you don’t have to pay to retrain them.

We love having First Response come to our center to do trainings. They are always very professional and thorough. If you need CPR, First Aid or Fire Safety, they are amazing!


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


This was the most informative and hands-on cpr class I have taken in the 13 yrs I've taken classes. Our instructor was awesome! Thanks, Jeff Rowland!


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 First Response Safety Training team.


I am sooooo happy and knowledgeable 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!
