Free CPR & AED Training
The Red Watch Band Program is in its sixth year at the University of Iowa. Over 2,700 students have been trained so far! The training program focuses on knowledge, skill, and confidence building regarding preventing death from alcohol overdose. Students are taught the knowledge and skills to "make the call," and using role plays, given opportunities to build confidence to intervene on behalf of another. All students who complete the training will receive CPR, AED and alcohol bystander training, and will be better able to link the impact that alcohol has on the body.
