Training For Life is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to "Empowering Individuals & Communities Through Education & Training and thereby Increasing the Quality & Quantity of Life."
September 11th, 2001. That awesomely horrible day, our founder, Scott Caruthers, responded to the World Trade Center in his capacity with the Regional Emergency Medical Services Council of New York City (REMSCO).
Officially formed on October 4th, 2001, training immediately began, and soon Training For Life earned the distinction of becoming an authorized American Heart Association Community Training Center as well as a signing a Letter of Agreement to assist New York City's Office of Emergency Management (OEM) by providing advanced training to eligible Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).
With the ultimate goal of establishing, or helping to establish, Community Training Centers capable of providing training in not only Emergency preparedness but a myriad of other, more optimistic, skills. The intention is to draw upon other individuals or organizations in the community with something to "share" in order to continuously enrich our course offerings and serve the needs of local residents.
