Stop the Bleed training

Did you know that uncontrolled bleeding was the leading cause of potentially preventable death among trauma patients? Or that it only takes five minutes for a person to die from traumatic blood loss? How about that 60,000 Americans die from blood loss each year? Traumatic injuries can happen anywhere. And considering that it takes an average of eight minutes for emergency medical services to arrive (14 minutes in rural areas), the difference between a saved life and a tragic death can hinge on bystanders and their access to the supplies they need to provide first aid.

The STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding. While more than 1.5 million people have now been trained to STOP THE BLEED®, that’s just a start. Our goal is to train 200 million. STOP THE BLEED is the result of a collaborative effort led by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) and the U.S. Department of Defense to bring knowledge of bleeding control to the public.

STOP THE BLEED® training consists of a short overview on the "ABCs of Bleeding Control" followed by hands-on-training by certified instructors. Each training session is about 75 minutes and this simple course will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life. Once complete, individuals will receive a certificate and will be registered with STOP THE BLEED®.
