Street Medic Training in Vermont, 4/25-27 (english)
11 Mar 2003
Modified: 09:54:16 PM
Announcing a 2 1/2 day long Basic Street Medic Training on the weekend of April 25-27 in Burlington, Vermont.
Dear friends and fellow activists,

Would you like to be a street medic for political demonstrations? Street medics provide basic first aid and support during progressive demonstrations and direct actions.

There will be a 2 1/2 day long Basic Street Medic Training on the weekend of April 25-27 in Burlington, Vermont.

We will provide training in basic first aid, chemical weapons decontamination, emotional support and street medic logistics. YOU DO NOT NEED ANY PRIOR HEALTH CARE TRAINING OR EXPERIENCE TO BECOME A STREET MEDIC.

We are hoping to form a Vermont-based Action Medical collective after the training. Participation in the proposed collective will be voluntary, and you will not be required to join or support the collective if you participate in this training.

The training is volunteer-based and free, but we ask for a $0-100 donation to cover training materials and travel expenses for our trainers. We can help with housing for anyone coming from out of town.

PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS!

Check out street medics on the Web at http://www.bostoncoop.net/balm
or http://www.action-medical.net

Email: manna (at) unconscious.net or call 802-655-1733 to register and for more information.

If you would like to participate in the training you must register ahead of time, as space is limited. You will not be allowed into the training without pre-registration.

( Not really a porno man )

You will be doing a service.. cause you know.. it's
coming and many will not survive.. I feel really bad
that that will be the case.

We could preven many major disasters if folks like you
would listen.. that may be terrorist induced. They
don't care what flag your flying-- if it's not islamic
fundamentalists.. doesn't matter - less they need you till
they complete their proposed mission.
