How It All Started
Karen Morrison co-founded MCR Medical with her husband, Charlie, to meet a need they saw first-hand in the first aid and CPR training community: providing the best quality products, at the best price, with integrity and an authentic personal touch through the relatively new market of e-commerce. They started MCR as a small business out of their spare bedroom, handling all of the customer calls, order fulfillment, shipping and the ins and outs of small business themselves. Together they worked hard, rarely taking time off as they committed to the business and developed their future plans.
Karen’s bright, happy spirit and personal warmth greeted every sales call, and her business savvy and commitment to the future were the backbone of their partnership. Because of their commitment to quality and integrity, the business quickly flourished. In 2014 they purchased their first warehouse, beginning to realize their dream. With their shared background in CPR training and first aid, Karen and Charlie together developed and sourced the best CPR products to share with their fellow trainers, always mindful of the human impact of kindness and fairness in their interactions with their customers and their workforce. They were not just building a successful business, but a GOOD business, and Karen’s warmth and wisdom led the way. Continue reading Honoring Karen Morrison With Wildflower Seeds

A Few Details to Discuss
There are a lot of options when it comes to what you can get inside of your personalized kit. For it to qualify as a kit, you must have at least one CPR manikin and one AED. There are a lot of additional products and accessories offered throughout the kit building experience that you can select and make custom to your specific training needs. Various products that we sell have a warranty of up to 3-years, and EVERY order comes with fast and free shipping.
Different Product Options
There are multiple options for products offered in the build-a-kit package. For example, you can get three different sizes of manikins. Those sizes are adult, child, and infant. Along with size, you can get your manikins with or without a feedback monitor. If you want one manikin, we have a single option, but we also have a 4-pack. Want more than one size? Perfect, we have multiple different pre-selected combinations and we also have a family pack. If you need an AED for your training, they come in singles and 4-packs, and you have 4 different AED options to choose from to best fit your needs.

Let’s be honest, high school students are more concerned with social media and the Kardashians than they are with CPR and First Aid Training.
