Community Medic Training
This January 24th, 25th and 26th, we the Rosehip Medic Collective, are putting on a 20-hour Community Medic Training. The training is holistic, focusing on prevention, response to emergencies, and aftercare. Participants leave with useful tools whether they plan on being a medic at protests or if they want basic first aid knowledge for their neighborhood. The schedule is intensive, with one evening session and two long days that include hands-on practices and realistic scenarios. We strive to make our trainings accessible, safe and supportive for all people and will work with you beforehand to make sure that your needs are met.
This is not a street medic training, although the core curriculum will be the same and those seeking a street medic training will have the opportunity for a brief training covering pepper spray and other protest specific considerations at a later date.
Our training includes:
-the why’s, what’s, how’s and ethics of community medicking
-preparedness and prevention
-patient assessment, basic first aid skills and life-saving techniques
-when to call 911 and how to interact with Emergency Medical Services
-packing your first aid kit
-and much more!
The training will take place in Portland (location TBA) on the following dates:
- Friday, January 24th, 5pm-9pm
- Saturday, January 25th, 9am-6:30pm
- Sunday, January 26th, 9am-6:30pm
Please note that we ask a $20-50 donation from all participants to cover our costs.
