DISCLAIMER: By RSVPing you understand that taking this training does NOT make you a street medic; instead you will learn about keeping yourself and others safe at actions.
Join NYC Action Medical and Mayday Space for a free online training about providing life-saving interventions in protest situations. We will be offering live captioning, and participants will receive a follow-up email with resources. This training does not require any previous medical knowledge. (Note: If you are a medical professional, consider attending NYCAM’s online bridge training to learn how to run as a street medic on Wednesday, June 24: tinyurl.com/StreetMedicMayday)
We will focus on how you can intervene in worst case scenarios during protests such as bleeding control and spinal injuries. The training will also cover scene safety, activating EMS, hot and cold weather ailments, chemical weapons, and more. If you cannot attend the training, we will be offering more in the near future.
Please note that this is NOT a street medic training, which typically takes 20 hours and requires hands-on participation. If you are a non-medical professional interested in becoming a street medic, be on the lookout when in-person trainings can occur again. Send a blank email to email@example.com to receive updates.
ABOUT NYC ACTION MEDICAL: NYCAM is a collective of volunteer street medics active in New York City which began in 2016. We provide first aid and emergency care at protests, direct actions, and other sites of resistance and struggle. We also offer anywhere from 8 to 20-hour long training sessions for medical professionals and community members alike who are interested in supporting the fight to end oppression in all its forms. Our group contains volunteers with many levels of certification and from many scopes of practice (EMTs, nurses, Wilderness first aid, herbalists, etc) but all are 20-hour medic trained.
ABOUT MAYDAY: Mayday Space is a collectively-managed organizing and social hub for grassroots groups, neighborhood residents, artists and activists from across NYC (and beyond!) to hold classes, training, meetings, film screenings, retreats, conferences, art builds, and all-ages events on an affordable sliding scale. While our space is closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, we offer on-line programming and support mutual aid efforts on the ground. Inbox us if you want to get involved in planning other on-line events like this.
