The American Red Cross would like to announce that b4911, a Breckenridge-based company, is now offering officially sanctioned American Red Cross trainings in CPR, First Aid, Wilderness First Aid and more for individuals and businesses in Summit, Lake and Clear Creek Counties.

B4911 founders, Matt McDonough and Mike Costello, are EMTs who have independently taught Red Cross health and safety courses for years; the two joined together and formed b4911 in September 2012 and have since continued to expand their offerings.

“Matt and Mike are two extremely experienced professionals with a depth of wilderness experience,” said Jessica McDonald, who manages service delivery for American Red Cross Preparedness, Health & Safety Services in Colorado. “Partnering with small, local businesses like b4911 provides the perfect way to deliver Red Cross training to our less urban communities while ensuring that students get the quality of training guaranteed by the Red Cross through years of service and ongoing research and development.”

In addition to offering pre-scheduled, regularly occurring courses, their company offers courses on-demand and can provide on-site trainings for businesses. Visit or call 970-308-7091 for more information.
