Benedict Insurance; A New Beginning.

Now Helping Police, Fire & Everyone Else

I was fortunate to work with Police and Firemen’s Insurance for over a decade.  As a rep, I did my best to service east central Indiana/west central Ohio and as a midwest manager, I strived to recruit, teach, train and motivate police and fire reps from Ohio to Colorado.  What an “Awesome” opportunity.   When I departed my region was number one in the country.  My reps were taking care of our members and their families.

What was missing?   The ability to protect everyone.   Not only to provide top-notch service to active police and firefighters but to retirees, unhealthy individuals and the general public.

My purpose in life is to help others.   Others mean everyone.  Effective August 31, 2018, I resigned from the Police and Firemen’s Insurance Association to pursue my passion. Offering protection for the healthy, unhealthy, and even those who’ve been denied life insurance.

I’ve started an Independent Agency that can protect people across the united states.

I’m looking forward to helping as many people as possible.

Giving CPR to Yourself |

US FIRE ADMINISTRATION: Cardiac Fatalities in Firefighters

via Cough CPR

During a sudden arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), it may be possible for a conscious, responsive person to cough forcefully and repetitively to maintain enough blood flow to the brain to remain conscious for a few seconds until the arrhythmia is treated. Blood flow is maintained by increased pressure in the chest that occurs during forceful coughs. This has been mislabeled “cough CPR,” although it’s not a form of traditional resuscitation.

The American Heart Association does not endorse “cough CPR,” a coughing procedure widely publicized on the Internet. As noted in the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, “cough CPR” is not useful for unresponsive victims and should not be taught to lay rescuers.

Why isn’t “cough CPR” appropriate in CPR training courses?

“Cough CPR” should not be taught in lay-rescuer CPR courses because it is generally not useful in the prehospital setting. In virtually all lay-rescuer CPR courses, the finding that signals an emergency is the victim’s unresponsiveness. Unresponsive victims will not be able to perform “cough CPR.”

Are there situations when “cough CPR” is appropriate?

“Cough” CPR may be considered in settings such as the cardiac catheterization laboratory where patients are conscious and constantly monitored (for example, with an ECG machine). A nurse or physician is also present who can instruct and coach the patients to cough forcefully every one to three seconds during the initial seconds of a sudden arrhythmia. However, as this is not effective in all patients, it should not delay definitive treatment.




Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.


– Face Drooping Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile.

– Arm Weakness Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

– Speech Difficulty Is speech slurred, are they unable to speak, or are they hard to understand? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like “the sky is blue.” Is the sentence repeated correctly?

– Time to call 9-1-1 If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 9-1-1 and get them to the hospital immediately.


No response to tapping on shoulders.

The victim does not take a normal breath when you tilt the head up and check for at least five seconds.
