Stop the Bleed

No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. We will give you hands-on training in simple life-saving techniques.

Stop the Bleed is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives. It is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons, the Committee on Trauma, and the Hartford Consensus™. More information can be found at bleedingcontrol.org.
