Stop The Bleed

Saturday, March 31: National Stop the Bleed Day

The Stop the Bleed campaign is a national initiative – created by the American College of Surgeons with input from first responders and law enforcement – that provides bystanders with the tools and knowledge to stop life-threatening bleeding during the precious moments before first responders arrive.

The program is for anyone … and it’s free! This course is great for anyone who wants to be prepared to save a life. Bring a family member or friend and you will learn how to control bleeding using direct pressure, wound packing and tourniquets.
