What would you do in a mass shooting event or if you came upon a car accident?  In large, tragic events many victims will die from uncontrolled bleeding. The Stop the Bleed program teaches bystanders how to stop the bleeding until first responders arrive.  This course will teach the correct techniques for applying a tourniquet, packing a wound and how to properly apply pressure dressings.  Participants will also learn how to identify certain wounds and the special care those wounds require.  A certificate of completion will be provided at the end of the training to participants that are able to successfully demonstrate their ability to Stop the Bleed.
