Event Description:

Bob Otter, Founder and CEO of citizenAID
 will be our guest speaker at our luncheon on Friday, September 21st.  As the President & CEO of citizenAID North America, Bob works with schools and businesses teaching them how to act effectively after serious injury from an accident to save lives before the first responders can arrive. They teach what to do in situations involving active shooters, bomb blasts, and vehicle attacks as well as accidents internally at businesses -- actions that save lives.

citizenAID was first launched by four deeply experienced civilian and military clinicians working in collaboration with industry to improve public resilience. citizenAID leverages the success of the Combat Lifesaver Program, which was originally created to decrease the percentage of preventable deaths on the battlefield by teaching basic trauma care to battlefield soldiers. citizenAID North America has repurposed this training for consumption by non-military citizens and has created a free mobile application so that this knowledge is accessible to every American, free of charge. citizenAID North America has also created online trainings that expand on the app as well as Public Treatment Kits and wall stations in various sizes for schools, community spaces, offices, and public transportation hubs.

We are proud to announce a formal partnership with citizenAID to provide local businesses with citizenAID’s life-saving online training courses and public treatment kits. Employees can learn how to react to various crisis situations and treat wounded people before help arrives. Additionally, citizenAID's free mobile application is available for download for all employees – and all citizens nationwide. The courses and app were designed by emergency response experts with decades of experience.

Bob has spent his entire career in the emergency response field. Currently in his 23rd year in the fire service as a Firefighter and EMT and the last 15 years also in the pre-hospital medical equipment industry. His development of citizenAID™ North America is the culmination of both his street clinical and business professional experience saving lives. After decades of responding to incidents and seeing patient outcomes directly corollate to speed of initial care, for Bob, the citizenAID™ mission is personal. He has summed up his belief in citizenAID™ this way “The concept we are explaining is fundamental, the skills we are teaching are very basic and the fact is that if we disseminate this information in a manner that is accessible to all and easily repeatable by everyone, we will save thousands of lives. When we all work together we can make a huge difference in the lives of others”
Bob is a graduate of Dension University in Granville Ohio and is married with two children.
