Lancaster schools staff learn life-saving tourniquet technique

Terri Higgens said she’s seen it all in her 20 years as an emergency room nurse at  Fairfield Medical Center.

So as her group of  Lancaster City Schools teachers and staff practiced wrapping tourniquets on each other,  Higgens acknowledged the elephant in the room.
“This is a tough thing to consider and think about, but I’m here today because you’ve already considered that,” she said. “The only solution is to either never leave your house again or to be prepared.”

Tuesday’s lesson, part of Lancaster City Schools’ professional development day, was a part of the  national Stop the Bleed campaign . The training aims to arm the public with the knowledge and confidence to react in trauma situations.
