Paul and Candice remain passionate in their commitment to providing high quality in-person lecture and hands-on training to not only First Responders but also to the Immediate Responders of our community.


With over 40 years of combined experience in public safety, Paul and Candice believe reality based training makes the difference in how we respond to any critical incident or life threatening emergency and are proud to provide that same high quality training to any citizen as an immediate responder in their community. Paul and Candice also love to travel and will bring their dynamic training programs to you!
