Meet Gill McCulloch, Coquitlam resident and owner of Safe + Sound

Headshot of Gill McCulloch, Owner, Safe + Sound First Aid Training Ltd.Gill immigrated to Canada in 1996 with her husband Warren and has lived and worked in the Tri-Cities since 1998. As a proud member of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, she enjoys working with local businesses in the Metro Vancouver Area and providing training for their staff.

Clients describe Gill as enthusiastic, kind-hearted, hard-working, honest, generous, organized, thoughtful and with a good sense of humour. Safe + Sound is more than a business to Gill - it's also her mission. She wants to live in a world where people look out for each other and help each other - without expectation of reciprocation or reward. Offering first aid training is her contribution to creating that world.

Gill wants people to know how to give CPR to a person in cardiac arrest, to have the skills to save a choking baby and to be able to help a person who is considering taking their own life.

We don’t want anyone to have to stand by and watch a person die when they could’ve been saved.

Our training saves lives and over the last 22 years, we have trained over 40,000 people in first aid & CPR. What gives us the greatest satisfaction is when a client tells us that they have provided first aid or saved a life using skills they learned on one of our courses. When people are empowered with first aid skills and safety information, they get to come home to their families Safe and Sound.

Learn to save a life

First aid is easy to learn. Courses are inexpensive and take only a few hours of your time.

When Gill's son was five years old he choked on a candy, stopped breathing and nearly died.

Gill was able to save his life using skills she learned during her Red Cross training.

The day after that incident, a friend told her that a five year old girl in her neighbourhood had just died after choking on a piece of apple. Sadly, the little girl’s mother did not have the necessary training to save her daughter’s life.

Two similar incidents - two very different outcomes.

First aid is easy to learn - anyone can do it. A first aid course is inexpensive, only takes a few hours of your time. It may well be the best investment you will ever make.

In life-threatening emergency situations like choking, seconds really do count. Without oxygen the heart stops beating in 4-6 minutes. The average time it takes for an ambulance to arrive is 10 minutes. We all need to be prepared to react quickly and effectively in order to save a person’s life.

Anyone can be a hero by saving a life.

Don’t wait until it is too late. Register for a course or book a class for your team. Empower yourself and your co-workers with life saving skills.
