Programs and Services

Organizing local Programs & Services that improve the health, safety, and economic security of fishermen and their families is something we work on all year long. These Programs & Services can sometimes come together quickly, so please check back often to see what’s happening near you.

CPR / First Aid / Ergonomics / Opioid Awareness

  • Location: MFP Office - 2 Blackburn Center, Gloucester, MA, 01930
  • Date: June 26, 2018



Fishing Partnership is pleased to offer CPR/1st Aid & Ergonomics training and, to support our communities, we are presenting Opioid Awareness training.

The cost of the CPR/1st Aid course is $25.00, payable via exact cash or check on the day of the seminar.

Ergonomics and Opioid Awareness/Narcan® trainings are FREE.

Ergonomics is the science of adapting workstations, tools, equipment, and work methods for more efficient, comfortable and error-free use by humans. This special course was designed especially for commercial fishermen. Learn how to improve your ergonomics on your fishing vessel! You will learn ways to reduce pain and injury to your body through more efficient work practices (efficiency = more fish!).

We hope you can join us for this comprehensive program!

For more information or to register for the course, please contact Nina Groppo at 978-282-4847 or register below.
