Student Health and Counseling Center


WATCHDOG is a safety education program that trains students to respond effectively in emergency situations and acquaints them with campus safety resources. Students will receive a two-year CPR certification through the American Red Cross. 

A cost of $10 covers participation in the WATCHDOG Safety Summit, which includes bystander intervention education, CPR Training, a box of Narcan, and assorted WATCHDOG swag. Funding from Associated Students Inc. has allowed a reduction in the price from $35 to $10 per student this semester only. 

Space is limited to 100 currently enrolled Fresno State students. 

WATCHDOG participants will learn: 

  • Bystander intervention (How to help a fellow Bulldog)
  • NEW Lifesaving Narcan (Opioid overdose prevention) training 
  • Adult CPR/AED/Choking certification training
