Bleeding Control Course
Whether faced with an accident or an active shooter situation, everyone must be able to “Stop the Bleed.” YOU ARE THE HELP UNTIL HELP ARRIVES.
Ideally, every public gathering facility should have a Public Access Bleeding Control Station prominently displayed on the wall next to all AED devices and every classroom in America should have an Individual Bleeding Control Kit. These kits are easy to use, effective, and affordable. More importantly – they save lives.
The “Stop the Bleed” campaign was launched during an event at the White House, to provide bystanders of emergency situations with the tools and knowledge to stop life threatening bleeding. Working with the private sector and nonprofit organizations, the “Stop the Bleed” campaign will put knowledge gained by first responders and our military, into the hands of the public to help save lives.
NAEMT participated in the launch of this White House initiative, and has endorsed the Stop the Bleed campaign. NAEMT was recognized at the launch for its work in developing the Bleeding Control for the Injured (B-Con) course to teach basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet & bleeding control with hemostatic agents. The course is designed for NON-tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMS, security personnel, teachers, and other civilians requiring this basic training.
Combat First Aid Staff has instructed Fire, EMS, Hospital Staff, and Civilians in Combat/Critical First Aid as well as >2000 Law Enforcement Officers. The Combat First Aid Instructors consist of a combination of Tactical Paramedics and Law Enforcement Officers. ,,
Don’t be paranoid. You can be prepared. You can save a life.
