Life-Assist is a family company with a family history.The story begins in the mid 1970s when Stan and Judy Davis packed up their U-Haul truck and moved their four children from Texas back to California to be close to family. Stan’s father and grandfather were both medical doctors who emphasized the value in serving others. Life-Assist was built on those principles. As a former Hewlett-Packard employee, Stan was involved in the very beginnings of EMS and as a world traveler, he saw firsthand the need for highly trained, well equipped emergency medical and rescue personnel. Bringing his knowledge and experience to bear, in 1977 Stan and his wife Judy started Life-Assist. Stan's experience, and a degree in business, was a good fit. From the very beginning Stan ran the business with one very basic tenet – that no matter what, the customer comes first. We continue to develop the business with Stan’s core principals as our foundation - friendly, helpful customer service, a knowledgeable and responsive sales staff, competitive pricing and timely delivery.
