Save a life: free Stop the Bleed class Monday July 22

Monday, July 15, 2019

The ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding in someone who is injured and effectively assist that person can save a life. 

The help given by an immediate responder can often make the difference between life and death, even before medical professionals arrive.

Stop the Bleed is intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency,

During Stop the Bleed training, you will learn how to:
  • Determine if an area is safe for you to proceed toward a victim to provide assistance
  • Identify any nearby tools to assist you such as a publicly placed bleeding control kit or everyday items that can be used to control bleeding.
  • Use your hands to apply direct pressure at the site of the wound to stop bleeding
  • Pack a deep wound with cloth or gauze to control bleeding
  • Correctly apply a tourniquet to an injured limb to stop bleeding
  • Keep the victim calm until help arrives

The class is free and open to all. Please sign up here for planning purposes.

The class will be held at the Shoreline Covenant church, 1330 N 185th, 98133 on Monday, July 22, 2019 from 7-8:30pm.
