Stop the Bleed®

Stop the Bleed® In-Person

Research has shown that bystanders, with some focused training on critical skills, can become heroic lifesavers. Join us on Thursday, April 4 at 6 pm and learn how you can save lives and build community resilience by empowering yourself to stop life-threatening hemorrhage.


The STOP THE BLEED® campaign is a national initiative aimed at empowering bystanders to take action during bleeding emergencies before professional help arrives. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Purpose and Origin:
  2. What You’ll Learn:
    • In a STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll acquire three essential techniques:
      1. Applying Pressure with Hands: Learn how to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound.
      2. Packing Wounds: Understand how to pack a wound to control bleeding.
      3. Tourniquet Application: Learn the correct method for applying a tourniquet.
    • Armed with these skills, you’ll be better prepared to assist in emergencies and potentially save lives.
  3. Who Can Take the Course:
    • Anyone interested in learning this lifesaving skill can participate.
    • The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® campaign has trained over 3 million people, including students, teachers, and community groups.
    • The goal is to empower immediate responders who can make a difference during bleeding emergencies.

Remember, a bleeding injury can happen anywhere, and being equipped with these skills can mean the difference between life and death.
