~Logistics: The Community Street Medic Training is a weekend training teaching basic community medical skills including triage, assessment, basic treatment, wound care, basic herbs, organization, clinic set-up, and more. Each day builds on the previous day so attendance for the full training is highly encouraged and necessary to gain the full set of knowledge offered.
This training is being hosted at the DIRT Center near Stevensville and on-site camping is available to all participants. The DIRT Center is on 7.44 acres of mostly forested land so tent spots are plentiful and car camping is also available. The DIRT Center is also 15 minutes from the town of Stevensville which has hotel/motel and AIR BnB options available as well.
Lunches will be provided on Saturday and Sunday for all participants. If you are camping please note that other meals are not provided as part of the course so you are responsible for your own food needs, however an outdoor stove and access to drinking water and a place to wash your dishes will be available on-site for campers. There is also a 24-hour grocery store (Super 1 Foods) with an ever expanding organics section 15 minutes away as well as some lovely local resturaunts including an organic Mexican restaurant with great food at reasonable prices.
Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that you can move in during the training as well as warmer layers as the evenings often get chilly. It is June in Montana so always be prepared for both heat and rain. You will also want to bring a notebook and writing materials and if you already have a med kit that you use bring that as well.
On-site childcare is available during the training!
