Event Details

Trauma is the leading cause of death in Americans ages 1-44. Twenty percent of the people who die in mass shooting, or mass casualty situations, could have been saved if people just knew how to apply pressure, stuff a wound, &/or apply a tourniquet properly. 

Our current law enforcement, fire/rescue, and EMS are not aligned for optimal victim survival. Often bystanders are on the scene before first responders, and those first few minutes are crucial in controlling life threatening bleeding.  In fact, there is a meaningful push to think of bystanders as immediate responders to a crisis, and not a passive observer.

Although mass shootings receive so much attention, serious bleeding is more likely to result from everyday injuries that occur at home, at work, or when driving. The techniques taught in Stop the Bleed, which you will be able to practice, can be applied to bleeding, regardless of the cause.
