“Stop the Bleed” is a nationwide campaign aimed at making communities more resilient by preparing residents to save lives if their neighbors are severely bleeding. Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as five minutes, making bleeding control critical in such instances, according to the American College of Surgeons, which leads the national program.

Through the “Stop the Bleed” course, participants are able to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively.
