This engaging “Stop the Bleed” course will give participants skills which can make the difference between life and death when it comes to home injuries, work-related injuries, motor vehicle crashes or mass shootings.


“Stop the Bleed” focuses on the immediate response to bleeding, recognition of life-threatening bleeding, and appropriate ways to stop bleeding. During the 90-minute session, participants will have an opportunity to practice with tourniquets, apply direct pressure to simulated wounds and learn how to pack (fill) wounds with medical gauze.
