Stop the Bleed

Stop the Bleed is a national, hands-on program that is available free to the community. Its purpose is to teach individuals to help someone who is bleeding. It helps encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders can be, bystanders will usually be first on the scene. Mass casualty events, car accidents, falls or household accidents can lead to severe injuries. The Stop the Bleed campaign, launched in October 2015 by The White House, aims to teach bleeding control to the public and improve survivability. By providing civilian bystanders with the skills and basic tools needed to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation, lives can be saved.
