Chicago Street Medics Training 2/24 + 2/25

Chicago Street Medics Training 2/24 + 2/25
Hey folks,
I am organizing a Street Medics training which will be in Chicago on
February 24th and 25th at a location to be announced. The trainers are
Catherine and Brian from On the Ground, a medical affinity group in
Syracuse, NY. They are both experienced street medics and trainers, and
did medical in numerous protests including the RNC, the Inauguration, A16
in DC, and much much more.

Their training will cover street first aid and chemical weapons
decontamination protocol, as well as extensive roleplays and assessments.
It will last at least six hours each day, and possibly more like eight, so
please set aside the whole weekend if possible. We are still determining
expenses but it will likely be sliding scale up to $30. Nobody, of course, will be
turned away for lack of funds.

We are also looking for folks not attending the training to participate in the
roleplays as protesters or cops. Please let me know if you are interested.

I will send more information on the training at a future time, but I
wanted to let make sure you guys set the dates aside, because I know how busy
things get. Please pass this information on to your contacts in the
Midwest (we have people interested in coming from as far as Madison,
Cleveland and Louisville) and forward it to whatever e-mail lists you're
on, tell them to contact me at yael (at) for more info.

Thanks so much for your interest. I look forward to seeing you at the end
of next month.
