Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Washington University’s Dr. Laurie Punch will lead the program which teaches the Basic Bleeding Control curriculum.
This program is designed for the public (no medical background required) and is similar to CPR training provided to community members. It provides basic steps people can use should they encounter a situation where someone is bleeding as a result of a gunshot wound or other injury.
Consider attending this one-hour training session. Like CPR, knowing how to “Stop the Bleed” could save someone’s life.
