About Us

On my first shift as a Paramedic, I remember being frightened. “It’s not like I have super powers–how am I expected to save peoples’ lives??” I asked myself. Sure, I’d read the books, passed the tests, and proven my skills. But…this was real life now. As I sat in the ambulance, waiting for my first call, I remember thinking, “I hope I can do this. I hope I’m ready.”

After a few weeks, I realized I had been more than ready that first shift, and better yet, I had became addicted. The feeling of positively impacting a stranger’s life–knowing that my actions have saved lives is nothing short of amazing.

My goal is simple: to share the amazing feeling of saving someone’s life with as many people as possible. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and skills to be a life-saver. You never know when somebody may need help–you could be at the mall, at a restaurant, at the park, at work, or at school–we want you to have the confidence to help anybody you can!

About the Owner

Stayin’ Alive was started by a Lifeguard and Paramedic.  David began lifeguarding when he was 15 years old.  At 17, he became a Lifeguard Instructor.  When he was 19, he became an EMT and then a Paramedic.  In his four years working on an ambulance as a Critical Care Paramedic, he responded to hundreds of 911 calls and treated many critically ill and injured patients.  During this time, he continued to certify students in Lifeguarding and CPR.

While on the ambulance, David noticed that there was a serious lack of basic medical knowledge in the general public.  This was literally killing people before his eyes.  He thought that if people knew the basics, specifically CPR, these patients would have a much greater chance of survival.  It was for this reason that in 2010 he created Stayin’ Alive.
