About 13 First Aid

13 First Aid was started in 2016 in Arnprior, Ontario (about 40 minutes west of Ottawa).  Our mission is to help businesses achieve WSIB compliance, and empower our attendees to respond safely in any workplace or home emergencies.

We are Red Cross Certified instructors who lead fun, hands-on courses in Ottawa and the Valley.  13 First Aid is an authorized provider through partnership with National Capital First Aid, a Red Cross Training Partner.

13 First Aid has grown to supply First Aid equipment, and develop the Pawramedics program.

About Jackie

Jackie Stephens is the owner and lead instructor at 13 First Aid.  She is a self-proclaimed first aid nerd, and active First Responder.  She started 13 First Aid as a way to expand her reach, and ability to help others. 

She is currently an Advanced Medical First Responder with the Canadian Ski Patrol, and a Firefighter in the town of Arnprior. She was recognized in 2016 with the John D Harper Lifesaving award. 

Generally speaking, she would rather be hanging out with her dog Lady than doing anything else.

About Lady

Lady is the Chief Cuddle Officer of Pawramedics, the star of the course manual, and a regular attendee of many Pawramedics First Aid courses.  She is arguably the cutest dog ever. 

She is very patient for a puppy but is still full of beans.  She loves to play outside with sticks, stones, and even bones. She is a social dog, and loves accompanying her people to the store, the office, or on adventures.
