John Briggs is the Chief Operating Officer at America First Response and started the company in March 2021 with his wife, Heidi, as a mobile CPR/AED/First Aid instruction service. Since then, the company has expanded to include several other classes and was just state approved to begin inter-facility transports. John is a licensed EMT with around 9 years of experience and is a lead EMT instructor, NARCAN certified, AVERT instructor, PADI certified scuba diver and swift water rescue, CPR instructor, and trainer for CPR instructors. John is an avid scuba diver, golfer (although he's a beginner), camper, fisherman, and traveler. John has been married to Heidi for 1 1/2 years, and they have been together for 10 years. Together, they have five children and three granddaughters. John's favorite movie is Ladder 49, which he finds inspiring and moving. John is known for his leadership skills, his passion for teaching, and his dedication to his family and his company.
