Street Medic Training, April 5th-7th (2019)
The Rosehip Medic Collective is very excited to announce our upcoming 20 hour street medic training April 5th, 6th and 7th 2019 in Portland, OR.

This training is designed to prepare street medics (aka action/protest medics) to provide first aid and spread calm at protests, encampments, and all sites of resistance. Participants are asked to attend the entire training (Fri: 5-9pm, Sat & Sun 9a-6:30p). It will take place at a centrally accessible location on major bus routes, with wc accessible bathrooms and teaching space.

We are continuing to develop a new application and registration process. Our goal is to streamline the process while prioritizing limited spots for BIPOC, queer and trans folks, people with disabilities and activists working towards collective liberation.

Cost will be $25-$125 sliding scale**

*** MORE ABOUT THE TRAINING ***
We offer 20 hour street medic trainings several times a year. Our trainings are open to people of any skill level and many kinds of abilities; we encourage physicians, herbalists, & EMTs to attend our trainings as strongly as we do people with no first aid or care work background. Our trainings are comprehensive, focusing on preparation, actions, and aftercare--and participants leave with tools useful for medicking at every major summit protest and with friends, family, and neighbors. Our trainings are intensive, with one evening session and two long days, and include a lot of hands-on practice 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 your needs are met.

Our trainings include:

-- The why’s what’s, how’s and ethics of street medicking
-- Action preparedness
-- Patient assessment, basic first aid skills, and life-saving techniques
-- Red Flags, when to call 911, and how to interact with Emergency Medical Services
-- Police violence and chemical weapons
-- Introduction to use of herbs in the streets and for aftercare
-- Packing your first aid kit
-- And much more!
