Dominic Urbano is an experienced first aid, CPR, and AED instructor with substantial field experience as a rural fire department EMT and industrial emergency response team member.
It was while working as a full time high school teacher and varsity team coach that Dominic first obtained an EMT certification. He responded to hundreds of 911 calls each year as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with a high call volume rural Whatcom County WA fire department. Emergency response to all types of injury and illness ranging from motor vehicle and logging accidents to acute and chronic illness became the norm for his nights and weekends. Dominic brings this real world experience to the classroom to help class participants gain confidence in the practical application of first aid and CPR training.
Dominic became an EMS instructor (a natural fit given his experience as a teacher and coach) and helped start an EMS instruction business in Whatcom County. With contracts to work with several oil refinery emergency response teams with ongoing EMT training and first aid / CPR training, Dominic began to address the specialized needs of industrial emergency response. Soon he was teaching classes to all types of groups; construction, logging, school teachers, fire departments, refineries, airlines…
Through his association with the ConocoPhillips refinery in Ferndale WA, Dominic was recruited to begin working as a full time safety coordinator. After 13 years of teaching and coaching at the high school level, Dominic successfully transferred his EMS, instructional, and coaching skills into the high intensity environment of oil refining operations, maintenance, and turnarounds. As a member of the refinery fire brigade, EMT, HAZMAT, and oil spill response teams; Dominic broadened his training and experience in emergency services even further.
A first aid / CPR / AED class with Dominic is not just a way to get a card. It is an opportunity to gain the confidence to act in a safe and decisive manner when faced with illness, injury, and death. With such a broad range of real world experience Dominic is able to help students prepare for the emergencies that they are most likely to face in their specific line of work.
