Did you know that uncontrolled bleeding is the #1 cause of preventable death from trauma? With knowledge and training YOU could help save a life in those critical moments.

You never know when you may come across someone who is experiencing a life or death bleeding situation such as an automobile accident, shooting, or other trauma. You could save a life simply by knowing how to control and stop the bleed. This FREE 60-minute class will teach you how to control bleeding for a victim or yourself before Medical Personnel arrive.

Stop the Bleed is an evidence-based training that was created by several federal agencies in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy in 2012. The purpose of this class is to better prepare the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters.
