Red Watch Band Bystander Intervention Training

Red Watch Bands

The Red Watch Band Bystander Intervention Training is peer led training that provides the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and intervene effectively in an alcohol-related medical emergency. Red Watch Band will give you the confidence to do the right thing when a person's life could depend on it. 

Participants receive a certificate, resource guide, and a wristband. Trainings are 75 to 90 minutes, with 15 to 30 participants. 

Past Red Watch Band participants had this to say:

  • “Everyone should have this information. It should be an Essential NU.”

  • “The most useful part of the Red Watch Band training was the part where we were taught the signs when you should call 911... As a risk manager, I was actually able to use this training.”
