Would you know what to do if a loved one collapsed suddenly in front of you? Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in the world. CPR can be the difference between life and death. You can’t assume that someone else will step in – that’s why it’s so important to learn CPR. Getting certified is easier than you think. Lake Jackson EMS offers First Aid training, Adult/Child/Pediatric CPR/AED for both healthcare providers and non-healthcare providers through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute. Contact us if you're in need of CPR/First Aid training. LJEMS also offers the Take-Heart-America 10-minute CPR training (Non-certification training).
Stop The Bleed
Our training courses and workshops are designed to teach and practice the methods and procedures you’ll need in order to prepare for a variety of emergencies that can occur in everyday life. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Lake Jackson EMS has successfully trained our local police departments, school districts, local business leaders, and many more. To learn more about bleeding control and why it's important, click HERE. If you are interested in receiving the education for yourself or your place of business, please contact us via the link below.

As we get older, changes to our physical and mental well being pose many dangers. Occasionally, the medications used to treat those conditions may cause falls to be more likely. In fact, falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. Lake Jackson EMS provides fall prevention education and has done so for many of our local Skilled Nursing Facilities as well as our adult Assisted Living Centers.
