    I've worked with NW Response on several festivals & events this summer. Their staff is calm, collected, great with various levels of customers (from intoxicated adults, to very particular 6 year olds). They are always prompt, the booth looks professional, they are very responsive to radio calls. The best on site medical team I have worked with. - 9/16/2019

    I have hired Northwest Response for two years in a row to provide medical services / monitoring onsite for a special beer event we host in Ballard (800-900 people). They have been professional, friendly, and very easy to work with for both booking and onsite services. I would definitely recommend them! - 9/25/2019

    Just completed a First Aid & CPR course taught by Thomas at Northwest Response. This course was excellent and fun, and it satisfied the Coast Guard requirements for my Captain’s license. I highly recommend it! - 9/25/2018

    I highly recommend Northwest response to Mariners who are looking to upgrade their licenses and in need of CPR, first aid and AED refresh. Tom was an outstanding instructor with a lot of tips for trauma in the marine environment. Thanks Tom - 4/16/2019

    I'm thankful that our event, the Seattle Pride Parade, routinely deals with minor medical incidents, like heat exhaustion, dehydration, cuts & bruises, ankle sprains, etc. Northwest Response handles these cases with compassion and thoroughness. If a more serious incident arose, however, I'm confident that Thomas Bliss and his colleagues would approach the situation with consummate poise and professionalism. I recommend them highly. - 9/16/2019

    Captain Bliss not only has a deep knowledge base, but he is able to make the training come alive by applying real life experiences and telling stories of true situations he and his colleagues have encountered that drive the training home. I was riveted from the moment training began until the class ended and it was time to go home. I highly recommend this instructor and this training. - 1/11/2019
