A Friend Dies. Who Cares? The Red Watch Band Team Cares. Training this Wednesday

A Friend Dies.  Who Cares.  The Red Watch Band Team Cares.  If that friend died from alcohol overdose (also known as alcohol poisoning or toxic drinking), you might have been able to prevent it.  Toxic drinking means drinking so much, so fast, you pass out. But did you know that after passing out, blood alcohol levels can keep climbing, depressing heartbeat, slowing breathing, causing death? To prevent that, join the Chico State Red Watch Band Team.  We’re students, like you, who care about our friends. And we’ve learned the quick steps to take to prevent death and summon professional help after a drinker passes out and can’t be awakened.

The mission of the Red Watch Band Team is to provide campus community members with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent student toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion, and respect.  The Red Watch Band Team movement has taken off at Chico State (almost 1,000 students have been trained!) and is designed to end alcohol overdose deaths by teaching students and other campus community members practical ways to handle alcohol emergencies and to summon professional help.  The trainings are FREE and open to anyone.

Sign the Pledge.  Join the Team.  Get Trained…    The life you save may be your best friend’s.
