Over 100 officers a year are killed in the line duty across the United States. Here in Louisiana (Shreveport/Bossier to be specific) we have suffered the loss of 3 officers in 5 years. 3 more officers have been shot and were fortunate enough to live to keep protecting our communities.
We are police officers and physicians serving our community and protecting our citizens. We want not only every law enforcement officer to have access to this extremely import training and equipment, but also citizens.
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,”Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here I am. SEND ME.” -Isaiah 6:8

“A big THANK YOU to F.I.R.S.T Chance for spending time with the commercial property managers and maintenance staff at Vintage Realty Company. The training provided by your team was exceptional and it made us feel that we could use the tools provided to save a life and stop massive hemorrahaging in the case of an emergency. The presentation and hands-on training was easy to understand for a "civilian" and we believe would be of benefit to everyone in our community. Thanks for all you do to help save lives!”
- Sarona M. Snyder, Director of Commercial Property Management; General Manager-Healthcare
