The First Care Provider Foundation prides itself in sharing LIFE SAVING knowledge with the general public and first responders using simple, yet evidence-based methods to address the most common causes of morbidity and mortality in an emergency (of almost any type). The courses taught by FCP are done so by an amazingly dedicated cadre of instructors throughout the world, who do it out of love for their fellow human being, with the ultimate goal of saving lives.
The training done by FCP has been instrumental in saving lives throughout the world and will continue to be a leader in the field as they evolve with new programs and refined methodology.
First Care Provider has expressed an overwhelming holistic pre-hospital approach to the layperson. Mass traumatic incidents challenge conventional first responders. How much more the layperson? This organization's emphasis goes beyond bleeding control. They have communicated how the environment dictates the actions of those willing and able to serve their family and many others. I thank them for relaying the entire message for our community to act.
First Care Provider is not only working to empower the community to respond to emergencies, but they also provide programs and resources for instructors looking to grow themselves. Their entire team is made up of individuals with full-time careers, who still make the time to assist other responders across the country, while ensuring the information their instructors provide is consistent and up-to-date. Make sure to check out their new app — one more way they enable anytime access to networking and class resources.
First Care Provider is an awesome organization. It’s teaching methods help teach you how to be ready for really any traumatic situation, from a car crash with someone how has an open fracture to a active shooter. You will know how to treat your wounds or the wounds of another including a family member. Not only that but you will start to think in a prepared manner where ever you go. You will start to look for exits and stop the bleed kits. It’s about learning how to being prepared and knowing what to do be for help arrive. You are your own fist responder. “First there, first to care.”
Awesome group of people! I am currently an instructor for them and they have the best material that I have seen so far. I am currently also enrolled in their instructor-beta program and can’t wait to see what we come up with in it and making teaching this course better in helping to train people and save lives.
First Care Provider is a collaboration of 2 veterans who saw a dire need in today’s society to get people to take heads out of the sand and be aware of the extremely volatile world we live in. Their goal is to educate, empower and save lives. In our world today you never know when tragedy may strike and FCP wants every person on this planet to have the knowledge to act in any emergency situation. The courses they offer provide the knowledge for anyone if you are hockey Mom to the CEO of a corporation, to SAVE a life until helps gets there.
All I can really do is echo what everyone else has said here in their comments. This is a great organization and I’m thankful for all I have learned from them.
This an awesome non-profit, great training programs, and very dedicated staff.
As an Instructor in over a dozen disciplines, and current EMT, they raise the bar and set a new benchmark for dedication to a cause, sacrifice by it's owners, and truly are an organization to look up to.
They have shown me a new way to go about teaching and learning in a new light and highly recommend. Truly a group of professionals that know how to bring leadership to the table.
The folks at First Care Provider are helping set the standards for “Stop the Bleed” programs. They’ve developed a simple but effective curricula for instructing the program and have set up an effective support system for folks teaching the program. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Every now and then, a group comes along whose goal is to help others rather than their own pockets. First Care Providers is one of those groups. Rather than promote themselves, they promote how you can help others and possibly save lives. They have devoted their time and energy to help each instructor without rush, encouraged participation and developed a program that could be a game changer in a crisis. The products they offer on their website are cheaper than I could find elsewhere as well. That tells me something. They are not in it for retail profit but to help others that need the the products to teach with or save lives. If you want your donations to make a difference in the world...this is the place that can do that. David McCullough - CAFT
They do an outstanding job of providing as simple and effective training program to allow laymen to deal with life threatening trauma
One of the most life-saving resources out there. Keep up the fantastic work
The training and information shared by these folks have DIRECT impact on people's lives! They are literally teaching others what to do in case of a serious medical emergency. There is no nobler than taking the initiative and doing something in order to save a life. It is the hope of Bill, Josh, and the team, that as many people as possible are empowered with the knowledge and tools to be able to save a life when presented with an opportunity to do so.
This is the best group for this training . They are the gold standard. I was able to provide thier course to over 600 people . Ever class ended with comments about how they wished they had taken the course sooner . One day this type of training will be as common as CPR training . We will look back at what FCP did and know it’s because of thier dedication .
The team at FCP are all subject matter experts in their field. They provide training to medical providers and civilians on many levels. They look at the needs of the community and incorporate the training to best fit their needs, not just the usual canned courses. The course content is comprehensive, including practical stations that leave the participant confident to respond. They have taught many classed in our state, and we have documented LIVES SAVED from their training. What shows most is their passion for teaching and sharing the message on how we all play an active part in our community preparedness and response. They are always available for follow-up to our participants at no cost. We will continue to use FCP training above other similar courses, as their content goes beyond just stopping the bleed. First Care Provider teaches participants global situational awareness and personal safety from a daily basis to mass casualty events.
Bravo FCP team, we cannot thank you enough for helping to keep our community safe.
FCP is a top notch non-profit with excellent staff and services. Their training and methodologies are intuitive, easy to remember, and high quality. Partnering with them is easy, and highly recommended.
