Feb 8-9, 2020, 9am-5pm
Open to all genders, ages 16 & up (minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian)
Instructor: Murphy Robinson, Street Medic, Wilderness EMT, and former Wilderness EMT.
The cost of the class is $95 for the two-day class (a huge discount from our normal weekend class price, because we really want everyone to learn these skills!).
Do you feel capable, knowledgeable, and empowered to medically care for your family & friends in times of need? Do you have the skills to respond to civil unrest, police violence, and natural disasters? In this comprehensive 16-hour Street Medic training we will learn to confidently assess and address injuries and illnesses from minor cuts & scrapes to major accidents and acute symptoms. We will learn to make a splint from improvised materials, prevent infection in an open wound, recognize when to seek advanced medical care, and build a first aid kit you can use to address common conditions. We will also learn about supporting civil protest as part of a Street Medic team, addressing injuries from tear gas, rubber bullets, and tasers. This training is based on the Street Medic values of radical consent culture, equal access to care, and grassroots community empowerment.
Please bring a paper and pencil to take notes, and a bag lunch & snacks for each day. This is an intensive class with lots of material to cover, so try to arrive well rested. Instruction will include lots of hands-on scenarios and role-plays (the best way to learn!), some of which may take place outside, so bring warm clothes.
