Welcome To Operation Heart Heal

We are a small company with a big mission!

In our over 10 years of experience working as Fire Paramedic first responders in Manitoba we have seen first hand the need our province has for accessible first aid CPR training and defibrillators. We provide first aid training to rural and northern communities.

The average Canadian is 20 minutes away from their nearest emergency room, in many rural cases this can be well over an hour. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) affects 1 Canadian every 12 minutes, and each minute that goes by without CPR/AED use, the rate of survival goes down by 10%. This is why Aim For Life has established Operation Heart Heal! Our mission is to provide as many Canadians as Possible with adequate First Aid, CPR & AED training. For every qualifying First Aid CPR/AED class, we donate an AED unit to that business or another organization in the community.
