The Red Watch Band movement is a bystander intervention program designed to end alcohol overdose deaths by teaching students how to handle alcohol emergencies and summon professional help. All participants who complete the RWB training receive CPR certification and are able to understand how alcohol emergencies are medical emergencies that require immediate, professional care. Over 100 Geneseo students have completed Red Watch Band trainings in the past two years.

Toxic drinking is an epidemic on campuses all across America. It means consuming so much alcohol the drinker passes out. But while "sleeping it off," the victim may be quietly dying. When you come right down to it, it's a problem that only students can tackle. To find out more, visit SUNY Stony Brook's Red Watch Band page.
