Free Stop the Bleed Training
Whether there's an accident, an incident, or unexpected trauma, learn how to Stop the Bleed and help those in need
The CPR of the 21st Century
Stop the Bleed is a national campaign created in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. Evaluation of the 20 children and 6 teachers killed revealed that many of deaths could have been prevented if their bleeding could have been controlled at the scene. No matter how rapid the arrival of medical professionals is, bystanders will always be first on the scene. Stop the Bleed training empowers individuals to act quickly and help save lives.
Training takes place at Nebraska Community Blood Bank, 100 N. 84th St., the first Tuesday of the month. Training is 90 minutes. Only one class is needed to fulfill training. This class is not eligible for Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits.
In training, you will:
- Learn how to identify life-threatening wounds
- Learn best practices for treating injuries until medical help can arrive
- Hear real-life experiences from people who have been first on a scene
- Practice techniques through hands-on training
You can also request a private training session. For more information, contact Erica Busta at email@example.com or call 402-486-9412.
