Someone is bleeding, severely. What now?
Bleeding injuries can happen in anywhere, anytime, whether it's from a serious accident, a natural disaster, mass casualty and active shooter events, as well as general violent attacks.
The average response time for an ambulance ranges from 7 to 14 minutes. Fatal levels of blood loss can occur within 3 to 8 minutes, far outpacing the quickest average emergency response team. Once bleeding starts, the timer is ticking -- fast.
How can you help keep someone alive while help is on the way?
During Stop the Bleed training, you'll learn vital skills and methods on what tools to use and how to use them effectively.
