Forward Action Medics (FAM) is hosting a 20 hour street medic training in Milwaukee
Friday, June 26th: 5:30PM – 10:00PM
Saturday, June 27th: 9:00AM – 6:30PM
Sunday, June 28th: 9:00AM – 6:30PM
Location will be shared with participants. We can help make transportation arrangements if needed.
You must be on time for the training. Individuals later than 30 minutes will not be able to attend. This is because there is a lot of information to cover in a very short amount of time, and what we cover in 30 minutes is the equivalent of one workshop’s worth of information…. so please be on time! If you know that you are often late to events, make sure you leave early to compensate.
This 20-hour training covers basic first aid skills and prepares you to help others stay safe and healthy at protests. It will also prepare you to meet health needs as part of a team in your organization, in your community, or as a member of Forward Action Medics, so that activists and communities can stay well and stay in the streets.
This training is rooted in street medics’ history of sharing first aid skills as a form of self-defense for our communities. It focuses on situational awareness and on issues that are common at protests including weather, delays in accessing medical care, and police violence. This training does not cover CPR.
While we strive to make these training opportunities accessible to all, some restrictions apply due to the intense physical nature of the training scenarios. Must be able to lift 30 pounds, move 25 feet independently, and easily handle and utilize first aid supplies. To request and/or discuss accommodations, please indicate so on the registration form and we will contact you.
Please register as space is limited. We will be in contact with participants before the training.
