About First Care CPR

Christy Tucker began teaching CPR and First Aid in 1998. She taught at the YMCA and the Boy Scouts. In 2010, she decided she wanted to begin offering classes to others. After about a year, she brought James in to assist with the books. Since James was in the medical field and had been EMT and a previous CPR instructor, it was a natural progression to bring him in to teach. In 2013, Bryan was brought on board in Texas to open a center. He has been an incredible asset to the company. He found a wonderful lady to be his wife while in Texas. She is Alice and as a cardiac nurse it seemed a no brainer to bring her into the company. First Care CPR has progressed from a center offering ASHI certifications to now able to offer ASHI, Medic First Aid, American Heart Association, and American Red Cross.
