Frontline is offering a free First Aid & CPR certification class Feb. 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mestizo Coffee House, 631 W North Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84116. Taggart Long, Frontline's training director and a firefighter paramedic in St. Louis, Missouri, will lead the workshop.
The class is aimed at Utah activists who'd like to work with Frontline as street medics at protests and other events focused on social justice and nonviolent civil resistance. Taggart will cover wound management, burn care, how to treat mace/pepper-spray exposure, basic First Aid/CPR and additional skills.
The training is part of a series of events focused on self-care and improving the health of the activist community in Utah, organized by massage therapist and Frontline interim Board member Nina Giardinelli.
The class is by invitation only. If you'd like to be added to a waiting list for for future trainings/Frontline events in Utah, please feel free to contact us through our online form here.
A special thanks to the owners/managers of Mestizo for providing Frontline with a free (as well as welcoming and beautiful) space to hold this training.
