STOP THE BLEED!   The Stop the Bleed program helps save lives by raising awareness about basic actions anyone can do to stop life-threatening bleeding after everyday accidents, emergencies or natural disasters. It is part of a national awareness campaign and call-to-action initiated by a federal interagency workgroup and supported by the American College of Surgeons. During this 60 min course you will learn these lifesaving skills and have the opportunity to gain hands on experience with tourniquet application and wound packing.
