Ready to React

If An Emergency Happens Right in Front of You...Would You Know How To React?

Heart attacks and mass casualty events can happen anytime, anywhere. Knowing how to Stop the Bleed and give Hands-only CPR could help you make a lifesaving difference.

About the Course

Ready to React is a free 60-minute training course taught by McKinney Firefighter Paramedics. The course focuses on teaching basic lifesaving medical interventions.

We can provide training at your location or at one of our McKinney Fire Stations.

Who Should be Trained? Everyone!

The course is open to everyone. Children as young as eight can perform Hands-only CPR and keep the flow of blood to the brain and other organs until paramedics arrive.


For more information and to set up a Ready to React class for individuals, companies, schools, churches or organizations, contact Merit Ossian.

Note: Taking this course will not result in official CPR or first-aid certification. What it will do is prepare you to be able to provide potentially lifesaving care until first responders arrive.
