107Ist CPR Training

Can you spare a few hours learning how to save a life? Thanks to Dale Montgomery, now you have the chance. Dale is a paramedic, a 107IST and a member of Old Growth FC. You may remember Dale’s efforts in 2012 helped to save the life of a fellow footy player, Gheorghe Lupu of Celtic FC:

Timbers Army's Old Growth FC Plays Match, Helps Save Life
Off-Duty Paramedic Honored for Saving Soccer Player’s Life

Dale’s efforts didn’t stop there. Inspired by this event, as well as by his experiences as a paramedic with American Medical Response, Dale spearheaded an initiative to offer CPR/AED classes to 107IST members, beginning with members of TAFC soccer teams.

Thanks to partnership with the Timbers front office, we have expanded course offerings enabling Dale to train Providence Park staff and 107ISTs every month. Most courses will be offered in the Community Room at Providence Park, which will allow for up to 16 members to receive CPR/AED training at a time. With the combined support of the 107IST, AMR, and the Portland Timbers, along with Dale’s generous volunteering of his expertise, we were able to have 855  people trained in administering CPR and use of automated external defibrillators since 107IST CPR/AED classes started in November 2013.

If you are interested in getting trained, you can participate free of charge if you are a 107IST member or $7 for non 107IST members. 


107ist CPR is currently having a challenge scheduling classes this summer with the compact Portland Timber MLS and Portland Thorns NWSL schedules due to stadium construction.  Our first choice is to schedule classes on Saturdays but many Saturdays have Thorns or Timbers games scheduled.  The precious few other Saturdays I have work commitments that I cannot reschedule. We are looking at alternative times and days of the week.  Hopefully this will be just a short break and we’ll be back to our once a month classes in August and September.  
Stay tuned via this page.

Thank you,

Dale Montgomery, Paramedic
107ist CPR & 1st Aid Training, Coordinator
