Stop The Bleed

by | Sep 14, 2019

Death is tragic. But a death that could have been prevented is catastrophic!

Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences.

Created by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, the “Stop the Bleed” coalition is focuses on raising awareness of how, with the proper training and materials, death from bleeding can be prevented.

This campaign was developed and motivated following the 2012 tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School located in Newtown, Connecticut. The Harford Consensus including law enforcement, the federal government, and the medical community concluded that by providing basic skills and tools to stop bleeding in an emergency, lives would be saved. The law enforcement program was widely received and is now being used nationwide. Unfortunately, disasters like Sandy Hook are becoming more and more common making this “Stop the Bleed” movement more critical than ever.

There are free classes available and we encourage you to seek, sign-up and learn this incredibly valuable information.

Skills include: 1) Staying safe 2) Calling for help 3) Applying direct pressure 4) Using a tourniquet 5) Wound packing

An individual can bleed out in 5 minutes and it takes Emergency Help an average of 5-7 minutes to arrive and help. Bystanders are always the first on the scene and this effort is focused on creating awareness and training and empowering civilians to assist and help “STOP THE BLEED!”
