Hey, I'm an EMT in Oakland. Also a student, I've been neck deep in calculus, psychology and life events, so this all kinda took me as a surprise. I would love to come help the street medics. Is there a connecting point for people interested in this? Any organizations organizing?

hey I would Like to help out as well I think before we can organize personnel we need to organize supplies and equipment, I'm sure people who are maced are not being medically treated for respiratory distress or irritations not to mention the baton beatings. Secondly we do need to organize EMT's and paramedics. Thirdly we need to ensure our medics safety all medical personnel need remember the first rule scene safety we cannot help people when everything is falling down around us we need to be clearly marked with both first aid and star of life badges on your arms and chest. We need to ensure that as medics we are there to support the cause medically; although you are involved with the cause we can't wind up injured so choose your battles and help the injured. My best advice is protest passively if you are going to protest don't get in a pigs face its a good way to wind up maced, and injured from baton beats. That said lets organize and help these people because they are us we are them and they need our help. Recruit any medics that you seek fit and would like to help. bring any and all gear you may have, and lets not forget to correspond with medical direction when we are in someones district. please message me so we can figure this out thank you!! and viva la revoucion!

Sonoran, the fine folks at OccupySF could probably use your services if you're in the Bay Area...

I do know NYC organizers have asked for medics.

What a wonderful offer. I would think that organizing and connecting medical personell would be a priority. Hopefully others can advise.
