Stop The Bleed !
Blood loss is the leading cause of preventable death in multiple casualty events, like mass shootings, terrorist attacks and earthquakes. Significant external bleeding can also result from everyday events such as a motorcycle crash, or an industrial accident. Rapid control of bleeding at the scene of the event can be life-saving.
That’s why we’re teaming up with the American College of Surgeons, FEMA, and the US Department of Homeland Security to ensure that:
• Bystanders have skills and knowledge to provide immediate bleeding control to victims at the scene of an event.
• Bleeding control supplies are located in all public gathering locations next to Defibrillators (AEDs).
• Bleeding control education is incorporated into our schools and workplace.
• People know what to do in an active shooter situation.
