Hands-only CPR and AED training

Guardian Medical Transport offers hands-only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillators (AED) training to a wide variety of community members in the public and private sector. Our organization actively markets this valuable training opportunity in an effort to improve out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates and improve cardiac arrest outcomes.

Guardian Medical Transport maintains three AEDs, nine lightweight CPR mannequins, four high-fidelity adult and pediatric mannequins and an interactive patient simulator mannequin.

Guardian is proud to have trained more than 35,000 community members in hands-only CPR. We would love an opportunity to visit your organization, school or church group and teach hands-only CPR at no cost. We arrive with all our gear and can teach your group in about an hour. This class is fun and interactive and could help you save someone’s life.

Loaner AED Program: To save just one life

An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. Guardian Medical Transport provides a lifesaving health resource via the Loaner AED Program, which allows members of the public to borrow an automated external defibrillator for community events in case of cardiac arrest. Early defibrillation and high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, are key to survival. The Loaner AED Program is a success if it helps a community member save just one person. We have witnessed community members use hands-only CPR and AED’s to save lives, thereby building the first link in the chain of survival.

Ride time and career shadowing

Guardian Medical Transport partners with the local community college and high schools to provide an opportunity for students interested in an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) career to job-shadow our current employees. We also work closely with Northern Arizona Healthcare’s education department so novice paramedics can ride along with those who are more experienced. This mentorship deepens new paramedics’ knowledge and strengthens their patient care skills.

Job shadow and ride-along program on hold due to COVID.

Demonstrations and ambulance standbys

Guardian Medical Transport gives back to the Flagstaff community each year by providing emergency medical standbys at local parades and special events.

Bike Team

Guardian Medical Transport’s Bike Team is available to stand by during events requiring mobile paramedics and EMTs. The team is able to work in crowded public areas or remote, off road forest locations. Our paramedics, supplied with essential advanced cardiac life support medication and equipment, deliver immediate medical or trauma care to patients and coordinate ambulance or helicopter transport to Flagstaff Medical Center if further care is needed.
