At CPR we are firm believers in being prepared – all the time.

We are also the first to admit as women we don’t want to carry around a 40lb pack.  A backpack is not an accessory to our heels and cocktail dresses.

From CPR classes to First Aid, full tanks of gas, food to feed an army (or a teenage boy sleep over), field trips, and extras for the guests you expect to arrive in a crisis and the ones that will simply come and need support. Our goal is to get your life ready both professionally and personally.

As Mom’s we also know that preparation and leadership often falls to us.

ShelleRae has been dealing with this with her son and his friends. “My son’s emergency preparedness conversation was simple – I am taking my mom – which then got his friends to all agree – taking his Mom was the best answer. 

“My Bug Out Bags get eaten (except the tuna) on a regular basis by the boys.  This makes updates easier for sure but also requires greater awareness.  One field trip and I can be empty.” – ShelleRae  


Permission to Treat


When ShelleyRae’s youngest son was 2 he was banging a hammer on wood when the claw3 slit his scalp open. Yes, we all paniced.

Thankfully she had a version of the download to the right …

Every day – emergencies happen. A few choice pieces of equipment can save your life.

A simple – get back to the car emergency kit works well – flats, flashlight, a leatherman style mini tool, a few small bills – enough to get one back to their hopefully well stocked car. 

Now these same supplies are wonderful for men as well – I just find most men have a few things in their pockets they can make do with while women rarely have pockets.
