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 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.
