LifeSaver Instruction & Fire Education, LIFE LLC., was formed in 2011 by John Kreuser with a goal to break the mold in Fire & EMS Training. After establishing a principle partnership with Eric Makowski Budrow in 2013, LIFE LLC lunged forward with training services for fire and ems responders focusing on the delivery of quality instruction.  There is no "cookie cutter" training here. Each class that we instruct is taylored to the needs of each agency we service. Our training philosophy is based on research and feedback from students.  Simply put, we do things differently. 

BENEFITS OF USING LIFE LLC:

  • Better student to instructor ratios. 
  • We use technology to enhance learning, in many ways. Hybrid classes, scenarios, response tools, we use it all. 
  • No "War Stories."  If there are relevant examples, we will use them but we are not there to tell stories, we are there to deliver relevant material. 
  • Ever sit through 100 powerpoint slides in a training?  We have and we dislike this practice very much.  Activities, hands-on, and other cognitive reinforcing activities are conducted. 
  • Research.  Our research has focused on how EMS and Fire personnel are retaining their trainings, and the results are not good.  Too many lectures with hours of slides and not enough relevant hands-on.  Therefore, we developed and implemented new instruction strategies that have proven to be very effective.  Student participation is up, cognitive retention is great, and the end result is a better trained, more confident emergency responder.
