Today’s First: Audited an EMT course at Defib This in downtown Santa Cruz. The students and staff were awesome. As a yoga instructor, I am required to have my CPR and first aid certs, I have always been curious about what an EMT course would be like. This facility had their training dialed in.. Great place. Ems1.com has a ton of info should you be mulling over the idea of becoming an EMT, paramedic or firefighter.
