About

KMW Outreach instructors are “everyday” people, trained by the Canadian Red Cross to deliver quality First Aid training.

Kirk Wannamaker, owner of KMW Outreach and a First Aid instructor himself, has spent 32 years in the health care field. Through his many personal experiences dealing with situations requiring basic knowledge of First Aid, he understands firsthand the importance of these essential life saving skills. KMW Outreach delivers effective, captivating and hands on First Aid Training tailored to various learning styles.

Within his own family, all members have been active within the healthcare field or have extensive training and experience with First Aid. Two of his children, that are active with KMW Outreach, are First Responders and work at their universities, on the respective Emergency Response Teams.

At KMW Outreach, we have made it our mission to provide Community members with the skills necessary to help friends and loved ones in the event of a medical emergency while awaiting advanced medical support.
