Stop the Bleed
Stop the Bleed training is a free 1-2 hour course taught by practicing EMS personnel that teaches basic life-saving medical interventions and methods to control bleeding. We use a combination of lecture and hands-on practice training to allow you to gain and become confident to act in a life or death situation.
This course was developed in response to the call from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Hartford Consensus to improve survival during active shooter and other mass casualty events.
In these circumstances, survival begins with bystanders. You will learn about scene safety, different types of bleeding, how to apply pressure, and using a tourniquet.
Bleeding injury can happen anywhere at any time. In the news we see it happen too often or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in the workplace, vehicles, bombing, home, outdoors, etc. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to Stop The Bleed.
By learning how to Stop The Bleed you can better be prepared to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene before EMS personnel arrive. You can be the difference between life or death by engaging in a medical emergency.
Campaign Pay It Forward believes strongly that emergency preparedness and intervention is critical to saving lives. We want to make sure that everyone who wants to be trained in these skills has the opportunity to learn, whether they are required for work or simply want to be ready to help.
We set aside 10% of our profits on every course to fund a need-based scholarship that allows us to offer a free course to one participant in every course. To apply for our scholarship, go here.
