Event description
Build upon your CERT training and learn life saving skills you can use when emergency professionals can’t get there. Registration Required.

About this Event

This four-hour, skill-building workshop trains participants to recognize life threats rapidly, protect an airway and stop bleeding.

Although designed for non-medical volunteers, many MDs, RNs and EMTs have attended the workshop and evaluated it as a timely and valuable update in knowledge and skills.

Marin Medical Reserve Corps MDs, RNs and EMTs lead the training and provide individual coaching. Marin County Department of Health & Human Services will provide Continuing Education Credits to MMRC RNs and EMTs who complete the class.

The focus is to build skills to help save a life in the first few minutes to hours after a major disaster, when 911 crews likely won’t be able to help everybody that needs help.

The class is very interactive in design including:

  • Short lectures
  • Demonstrations
  • Ample time to practice skills
  • Expert presenters and coaches to guide your practice
  • Use first aid supplies you normally can find at home

You will learn and practice how to:

  • Recognize a basic life threat
  • Clear and protect an airway
  • Stop severe bleeding; includes principles and practice of tourniquet application
  • Apply a splint and sling
  • Safely lift and carry a victim

Suggested donation $5 per person. Checks may be payable to the Marin Medical Reserve Corps Foundation.
