STOP THE BLEED is a national awareness campaign and call to action launched by the Department of Homeland Security. The goal of STOP THE BLEED is to promote grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before the professional emergency responders arrive to the scene.
Arming Law Enforcement Officers (LEO’s) with this valuable information will provide you with lifesaving first aid skills for self-aid, coworkers, or bystanders for other potential casualties.
Upon completion of this course you will learn and be able to:
- Perform a head to toe trauma assessment
- Manage the bleed
- Apply pressure dressings
- Apply tourniquets (commercial or improvised)
- Pack wounds
- Mange for shock
You will be given a STOP THE BLEED Kit after completion of this class
