EOH: Group Trains Bystanders To Be First Responders
What would you do if you witnessed someone get shot? Stand by … or would you be able to save the victim?
One group in Chicago is trying to get more people to choose the latter. Started in 2014, the group Ujimaa Medics – UMedics for short – travels around the city to give free workshops to teach people what to do during a shooting. And in a city like Chicago, that kind of training can be called upon at any time.
Morning Shift talks to UMedics co-founder Amika Tendaji about what compelled her to start the group.
