Stop the Bleed - Save A Life

November 15, 2017  |  5:00 PM  -  6:00 PM

COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES
“Stop the Bleed’ is a national initiative designed to provide bystanders with the tools and knowledge they can use to stop life-threatening bleeding. Uncontrolled bleeding can result from man-made and natural disasters (e.g., active shooters, bombings, train derailments, earthquakes) or from other emergency situations (e.g., vehicle crashes, plate glass window accidents, power tool accidents, farming accidents).
 
Severe bleeding can kill within minutes before EMS or other public safety providers arrive. The person closest to you may be the only one who can “stop the bleed.”
 
AFTER THE TRAINING, PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
• Explain the rationale for early use of a tourniquet for life-threatening extremity bleeding.
• Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to an extremity.
