This two-and-a-half-day training course will cover street first aid and chemical weapons decontamination protocol, as well as extensive roleplays and assessment. Designed as a complete introduction to basic action medical knowledge and skills, completion of this course will prepare you to serve as a street medic at upcoming political actions. -Everyone is invited. -No medical or first aid training or experience required. -Sliding-scale donations appreciated ($20 suggested.) November 2 (Fri.) 6pm-10pm Chemical Weapons (4 hours): Covers a review of current chemical agents in use (CN, CS, OC, and CR), a discussion of personal protection gear (gas masks, respirators, etc), and a complete introduction to tear gas and pepper spray decontamination and treatment protocols with demonstrations, hands-on practice and role-plays.
