PEOPLEâ€™S COMMUNITY MEDICS â€“ Free Emergency First Aid Training
SATURDAY 19 JANUARY 2013 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
942 Stanford Street
Knowing that 911 calls often do not result in an ambulance arriving in a timely manner to Black, Brown and poor neighborhoods largely inspired us to teach our people basic emergency first aid so that we can help one another until an ambulance arrives.
Phat Beets Produce and The Crossroads Cafe is hosting the PEOPLE’S COMMUNITY MEDICS as part of the Food N’ Justice Workshop Series.
We will give our emergency first aid workshop at 942 Stanford Street @ Lowell in North Oakland (near Market St.) at the North Oakland farmers market.
• Learn what to do before 911 arrives in communities that experience injuries, street and/or domestic violence and are neglected by the system. You will learn how to treat seizures and bleeding traumas like stabbings and gunshots.
This is a free event.
The People’s Community Medics can be heard on the radio most Saturday afternoons from 2 to 4 on Berkeley Liberation Radio, 104.1 fm and live streaming on the internet. You can reach us at 510-239-7720 or by email, facebook and soon on our own website.
