"Heffernan first aid is our go to source for any CPR and First Aid recertifications for our school.  Alyssa is very professional and ensures that our staff are equipped with up to date information and practices.  She presents all material in a fun and engaging way.  It is evident that she is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of First Aid, and helps us learn through hands on experience." - Rob Gunning, Principal, Arrowsmith School Peterborough

“I've done a few first aid recertifications for my job (teacher) with Heffernan First Aid, and recently did an Infant and Child CPR/Choking refresher class as I am a new mom. Each time I have left the class feeling confident in my abilities. Alyssa's classes are interactive and informative. Definitely recommend!” - Chrissy Bass-West, Teacher & Mom

“Alyssa is very knowledgeable and an incredible teacher. I have taken a few different classes with Alyssa and she makes me feel so confident in my skills and ready for anything! I highly recommend any classes with Alyssa, she is fantastic!” - Emily OGrady, First Aid Course participant

"Alyssa was just plain awesome! She was nice, fun, engaging, and made sure to stop frequently to ask if I had any questions and make sure she was going at a good pace for me. Recommend her for sure!!" - Nicole, CPR C course candidate

"It was great for the Kawartha Cachers to have Heffernan First Aid give us a short presentation about first aid for those of us who are outdoor enthusiasts and may require first aid skills away from cell phone reception and immediate help from first responders.  Alyssa was able to demonstrate and explain, effectively and concisely,  what trail and waterway users may expect in emergency situations and how to anticipate problems and deal with them effectively. We now know what to do while waiting for help or when we are in situations where help may not be available.  Advice about what we need to have in an "outdoors" first aid kit was very helpful. Thanks for the presentation. We appreciate you thoughtful, expert advice." - Dave Stabler, Kawartha Cachers
