I recently had the pleasure of getting to know the owner of Life Safety Institute based out of Concord New Hampshire. Owner Drew Toma has been teaching CPR since 2018 and officially opened the Life Safety Institute LLC in March of 2021.
Here are some interview questions I asked the owner:
How did you get into this business and why did you start it?
I tripped face first into it by signing up for an instructor course because I thought it would be fun!
Can you tell me about your background and experience?
I’m a certified firefighter and paramedic as well as a state instructor / coordinator. I’ve been in EMS for 7 years. I wanted to be a school teacher when I was younger.
What are some things people should know about your business and how your business is different?
We teach everyone! In addition to our regular courses we also run instructor training. If you’ve ever considered teaching CPR we can help you get started.
What is the main benefit people get doing business with you?
We have a good time, and so will you. You’ll walk away feeling confident and knowing more than you did from the start.
What’s the biggest mistake you see people making as related to your business?
Many other businesses focus on making a quick buck, but don’t focus or enjoy teaching. I think teaching is the fun part. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing engaged students.
Bonus question: What’s your favorite thing about New Hampshire?
All the breakfast spots in New Hampshire!
