No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide immediate care.
This class combines a lecture with hands on practice in how to give Trauma First Aid as a bystander on the scene when someone has been seriously hurt. This course comes with Bleeding Control 1.0 certification through the American College of Surgeons as well as the opportunity to purchase low cost Trauma First Aid Kits! Ages 14+
