“Stop the Bleed” class
With only 3 quick actions, you can save a life! The number 1 cause of preventable death after injury is bleeding. That’s why we want to train you how to STOP THE BLEED®.
Through our course, you’ll learn to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively. Dangerous bleeding injuries can happen anywhere - in a serious accident or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder!
How We Teach Our instructors teach in-person, using specific materials developed for bleeding control techniques. The benefit of in-person learning is having instructors coach your movements as you practice three different bleeding control techniques. They keep working with you until you demonstrate the correct skills to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.
What You'll Learn There are three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. These three techniques will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life.
