Stop the Bleed is a nation-wide training initiative with the goal of improving survival from natural and man-made mass casualty events. Many of the deaths from these events are due to severe bleeding that could be controlled if immediate action was taken. Unfortunately, in many situations, there is a delay between the time of the injury and the arrival of a medically trained first responder. In these situations, the civilian responder can be the difference between life and death.
WCEMS is a regional leader in providing Stop the Bleed training. Participants are trained to recognize and respond immediately to life-threatening bleeding using proven techniques for bleeding control. This class includes lecture, discussion, the demonstration of techniques, and opportunities for the participants to practice.
For those also interested in compression-only CPR we offer the Combo: TAKE10 & Stop The Bleed.
