Street Medic Training
January 25, 2017
Update: This training is full. We will plan to have another later this spring. Trainers nationwide are having similar experiences, so we will not be able to host an out of town trainer at this time. We are also working towards hosting a training by UMedics.
In the interest of providing health care to our communities, we are organizing a 20-hour street medic training! We are working with another street medic collective to potentially host a POC co-trainer.
Please plan to attend the entire course. There are breaks on Sat and Sun to allow you to tend to your lives, but the training is one event.
This ~20 hour course is designed to provide the participants with basic first aid skills, as well as specialized skills focused on protest situations.
Skills taught are patient assessment, treatment for wounds, head/neck injuries, illnesses/allergic reactions, heat and cold concerns, chemical burns, “less lethal” weapons injuries, when to seek higher medical care, and general preparedness for changing or unpredictable situations.
Street Medicine is not only for protesters: the course is designed to empower participants to take an active role in keeping themselves and their communities healthy and safe, while reducing their dependence on industrialized medical systems that are often inaccessible or hostile to many people.
