Become an “Everyday Hero” with Small Business, US Outdoor First Aid!

Owner and Senior Instructor of US Outdoor First Aid, Doug Trumble, has over 10 years of experience teaching Wilderness First Aid and he is now using his skills and experience to provide various types of trainings for the community.

What is the mission of your business?

“The mission of US Outdoor First Aid to teach “Everyday Heroes” how to effectively use First Aid techniques to stabilize a patient until definitive medical care is available.”

Why did you decide to start your business?

“There are a lot of people who would be willing to assist people dealing with emergency medical needs. People often won’t help because they don’t have the confidence level they feel they need to help. Effective hands-on training with basic First Aid skills really provides the confidence level needed to act in an emergency.”

What makes your business unique?

Our training approach is what our participants tell us drastically improves their comfort level to act effectively in a First Aid Emergency. Our training approach is to use as much “Hands-On Training” as possible so a participant’s “muscle memory” kicks in during an emergency to save a life.
