Accident Scene Management class

On Saturday, April 16, 9 chapter members-road captains and safety officers-attended an Accident Scene Management class put on by Road Guardians and taught by Jose "kono" Archila. Kono has 30 years as an EMT in Boston, now retired, at the rank of Captain.  The class consisted of practical application of basic lifesaving techniques, such as assessing wounds, basic wound management, scene safety, and how to remove a full face helmet from someone who is injured (and how to decide whether to even do so).

IMPORTANT CHANGE!!! For those attending the accident scene management class on April 16, there has been a location change!!! Due to schedule conflict with the Eagles, we were not able to secure the club for the class. As a result, I managed to secure the dining hall for the Fitchburg Masonic Hall. The address is as follows: 16 Thorndike street Fitchburg, MA, 01420 The cost is still $40, payable in cash or check, made out to the chapter.  The class starts at 8, and should end about 4 that afternoon.
