It's time to put on my Street Medic pants! I didn't feel comfortable wearing the label when my only training was a basic First Aid/CPR/AED certification. I didn't feel comfortable after Stop the Bleed or days and days of self-guided study. I needed more, so I got it!
I just received my NAEMT Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Provider certificate and some really intense hands on training. I won't stop learning (I can still level up), but it's finally time to start helping.
@Satsuma Thank you! Actually attending a protest is awesome, but I knew I wanted to do more (especially as I get older and less able to 'body on the line' it).
@ginguin yeah I feel that (i have similar problems, being disabled)
Street medics and organizers are so so vital to making protests actually work so your contributions are appreciated
