Meet Gill & Warren McCulloch, Coquitlam residents and owners of Safe + Sound
We immigrated to Canada in 1996 and have lived and worked in the Tri-Cities since 1998. As proud Members of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce and BBB, we enjoy working with local businesses in the Metro Vancouver Area.
English modesty keeps us from blowing our trumpets too much, but our clients describe us as enthusiastic, kind-hearted, hard-working, honest, generous, organized, thoughtful and with a good sense of humour,
Our business is more than a business to us - it's also our mission. We want to live in a world where people look out for each other and help each other - without expectation of reciprocation or reward. Offering first aid training is our contribution to creating that world.
We want people to know how to give CPR to a person in cardiac arrest, to have the skills to save a choking baby and to be able to help a person who is considering taking their own life.
We don’t want anyone to have to stand by and watch a person die when they could’ve been saved.
Our training saves lives. What gives us the greatest satisfaction is when a client tells us that they have given first aid to someone or saved a life using skills they learned on one of our courses.
Learn to save a life
First aid is easy to learn. Courses are inexpensive and take only a few hours of your time.
When our son was five years old he choked on a candy, stopped breathing and nearly died.
Gill was able to save his life using skills she learned during her Red Cross training.
The day after that incident, a friend told us that a five year old girl in her neighbourhood had just died after choking on a piece of apple. Sadly, the little girl’s mother did not have the necessary training to save her daughter’s life.
Two similar incidents - two very different outcomes.
First aid is easy to learn - anyone can do it. A first aid course is inexpensive, only takes a few hours of your time and it may well be the best investment you will ever make.
In life-threatening emergency situations like choking, seconds really do count. Without oxygen the heart stops beating in 4-6 minutes. The average time it takes for an ambulance to arrive is 10 minutes. We all need to be prepared to react quickly and effectively in order to save a person’s life.
Anyone can be a hero by saving a life.
Don’t wait until it is too late. Register for a course and empower yourself with life saving skills.
