It's National Stop the Bleed Day! Raise Your Hand for #stopthebleed

You can learn to Stop the Bleed and save a life!  

    • Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death for people between 1 – 45 years of age.  Approximately 35% of pre-hospital deaths are due to blood loss. 
    • That makes uncontrolled bleeding a major cause of preventable deaths.  
    • Death from traumatic blood loss can occur in less than 5 minutes.  But the average EMS response time is 7 – 10 minutes in the U.S.  So emergency bystander and first responder treatment is an essential life-saving skill.
    • In short, the more people and organizations find out about STOP THE BLEED® and become trained and equipped, the more lives that will be saved.
