Stop the Bleed Training

Unforeseen injuries can occur at any time, to any person -- falling off a ladder, having a kitchen mishap or being involved in a car crash. Thankfully, anyone can be trained to help save lives. The goal of the Stop the Bleed program is to help people like you learn how to prevent deaths from traumatic bleeding. Become empowered to save a life and sign up for training to ‘stop the bleed.’

Training is 1 hour
