Hello Street Medics Austin Community,
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our Stop the Bleed classes have been selling out every month! It’s incredible to witness the growing interest in acquiring essential lifesaving skills, and we are grateful for your continued support in our mission to provide accessible emergency medical training to the people of Austin.
As we strive to meet the demands of our community, we have been inundated with requests for more advanced training. We understand that the need for comprehensive emergency preparedness is more important than ever, but expanding our offerings comes with its own challenges. The cost of acquiring advanced equipment and instructor training can be quite expensive, and we have been working diligently to secure the resources necessary to meet your needs.
We are now American Heart Association Accredited
We are excited to share that one of our leadership team members has now been qualified as an American Heart Association (AHA) trainer! This means that we are now capable of providing HeartSaver and Basic Life Support (BLS) classes, giving our community access to even more vital training opportunities.
We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Hearts Are Wild CPR for their generous contribution. They have graciously loaned us all the equipment needed to begin offering these AHA classes, allowing us to take this significant step forward in our mission.
We Need Support!
To date, the cost of training and instructor materials has totaled around $800. As we continue to expand our offerings, we anticipate that each class will cost Street Medics Austin roughly $30 per attendee. Despite these expenses, we remain dedicated to our promise of offering all classes for free, ensuring that essential medical training remains accessible to everyone.
However, to achieve this goal, we are asking for your support. Please consider making a donation to help fund these advanced classes and enable us to continue providing these invaluable services at no cost to our attendees. Your generosity will go a long way in making a difference in our community.
In the meantime, keep an eye on our website, www.streetmedicsaustin.org, for the announcement of these new classes. We are eager to bring these vital learning opportunities to you and appreciate your ongoing support.
Thank you for being a part of the Street Medics Austin family. Together, we can create a safer and more prepared community for everyone.
The Street Medics Austin Team
