Basic Life Support + First Aid Training

Basic Life Support (BLS) + First Aid training helps participants recognize and respond appropriately to first aid emergencies, sudden illness, cardiac arrest with the use of CPR and an AED and life threatening bleeding and acute trauma using basic and intermediate medical intervention skills and equipment. Participants will gain knowledge and skills needed to give immediate care to an injured or ill person when minutes matter and to decide whether advanced medical care is needed and how to access such care.

First Aid training will cover personal safety, the use of PPE, minor injury issues (from cuts and bruises to strain and sprain stabilization), sudden illness and response to certain environmental injuries. Also included will be responding to choking/airway obstruction, anaphylaxis, opioid overdose, shock and more.

Should you choose, this training can provide you with First Aid and CPR/AED certification from the Red Cross.  It is good for 2 years and comes with a manual you can access on the Red Cross Learning Center site.

All participants will receive a healthy lunch, coffee, beverages and snacks, and a pizza dinner.

This a great preliminary training for Street Medic training, and participants will be alerted to the information that provides help in preparation for a Street Medic training.

We are offering a sliding scale pricing system to facilitate accessibility.  Please pay the highest amount you can afford. If you’d like to come but cannot afford the lowest price tier, please reach out as we do not want to turn anyone away for lack of funds.
