The Stop the Bleed Campaign was launched in October of 2015 by the White House and is housed under the Department of Homeland Security. The purpose of this class is to empower bystanders with basic knowledge and skills in the event of an active shooter, bombing, stabbing situation, or any other event that can cause life-threatening bleeding. This Bleeding Control class teaches you basic life-saving interventions. Even with rapid arrival of emergency personnel, bystanders can make a great impact before professional help arrives by being trained and equipped for a disaster. A person who is bleeding severely can die from blood loss within 5 minutes. This class is designed for civilians desiring to gain the skills needed to help in a disaster situation before emergency personnel arrival.
