CPR – Costa Rican Style

Last month, SureFire CPR traveled to Costa Rica and trained the locals!  Armed with homemade dummies complete with coconut heads, the SureFire CPR team trained the teaching staff at Intercultura Language and Cultural Center.  Intercultura’s campus is beachfront in the beautiful town of Samara located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.


In Costa Rica it can take hours for emergency services to arrive, so our staff decided to train the locals so they can be ready!


A special thanks to Laura Ellington and Estefania Vargas for their help and support.  If you are looking to learn Spanish in paradise, check them out at www.SamaraLanguageSchool.com.


Very soon, SureFire CPR will begin offering classes in both English and Spanish.

Pura Vida!

About the author

I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic...

And too often I would arrive on the scene of someone unconscious, surrounded by a circle of people feeling helpless. Sometimes those people would even have CPR training but lacked the confidence and experience to act.

That’s why I started SureFire CPR. Our classes are practical and engaging – teaching you the crucial skills you need to know what to do and feel empowered to take action.
