CPR Scams In Ottawa

Ottawa Residents be warned – There is a group going door to door selling CPR Memberships. They claim you can take as many courses as you like within the membership period. Sounds good! Except that when you call to register their courses are full, cancelled, no instructor arrives, etc. This company has been scamming residents for over 3 years in Ottawa. DO NOT give them money at the door.

Remember that any company that makes you pay before providing detailed information on their services is probably not legitimate. They have been providing this website (www.communitycpr.net). Their company name keeps changing but their scam continues.

Pulse First Aid is a registered business that uses WSIB approved first aid training programs such as the Ottawa Paramedic Service First Aid Program and the Lifesaving Society Program.
