My Business, 2nd City CPR & Safety Training teaches Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) to various schools, churches, healthcare providers, and especially children in Afro-American areas. Provide a high quality, extremely effective, and uniquely modern CPR training to African-American communities. This business is unique due to my experience with emergency medical care. I plan to provide Health Care Provider CPR to hospital personnel, as well as CPR training for daycare workers, security personnel and other professions requiring these unique training services. I plan to provide this exclusive training experience by focusing on the common issues and situations to the group of people being trained. For example, in the Chicago’s Englewood community my training would involve CPR and First Aid specifically for possible gunshot victims. In the South Shore community I will make it a point to cover drowning emergencies due to Lake Michigan in the community
