Maine CPR & First Aid was started in 2015 by a mom who wanted to make first aid and CPR available to everyone at a reasonable rate. Jesse started small and only doing classes here and there while still working another job. She found that Maine CPR & First Aid should be her primary focus when she saw the benefits of her training first hand! Knowing that the community is usually the first to respond not medically trained personal; she wanted to help the community to save the lives of those closest to them. Our biggest goal was to help those who didn't think they could. We strive to do our best for the community as well as all over the state! Learn more about our instructors below.
We are stronger together! Check out our community page to learn more about the amazing events the MCF helps to host as well as some inspirational stories!
