My Medic

My Medic was born when a tragic motor vehicle accident claimed the life of a family member. Bystanders, with no first aid supplies or training, watched and waited twenty-five helpless minutes for emergency medical personnel to arrive on-scene. As they stood by, the family member succumbed to his injuries in the front seat of his pickup truck. Our mission is to empower people with the skills, knowledge, and supplies to save lives.
