Program Description 

 

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

 

During Stop the Bleed training, you will learn how to:

· Determine if an area is safe for you to proceed toward a victim to provide assistance

· Identify any nearby tools to assist you such as a publicly placed bleeding control kit or everyday items that can be used to control bleeding.

· Use your hands to apply direct pressure at the site of the wound to stop bleeding

· Pack a deep wound with cloth or gauze to control bleeding

· Correctly apply a tourniquet to an injured limb to stop bleeding

Keep the victim calm until help arrives
