Stop the Bleed

Would you know what to do if someone was injured right in front of you and began bleeding uncontrollably?

Stop the Bleed is the National Public Awareness Campaign that initiated by a federal interagency workgroup in the response of the Sandy Hook Elementary School incident. The purpose of the program is to provide individuals with basic skills they can take in emergency situations to stop life-threatening bleeding and save lives until additional help arrives. The concept is similar to teaching bystanders CPR.
