Law Enforcement Hemorrhage Control & Tourniquet Training
Hemorrhage is the number one cause of preventable death in penetrating trauma. Early hemorrhage control is necessary to increase the survivability of any victim, including law enforcement whose priority is to stop or isolate the event. After completing tourniquet trainings, several first responders have saved lives through tourniquet application following a motor vehicle crash, underscoring the necessity of tourniquet training for law enforcement and the general public, much like CPR is for cardiac arrest.

Stop the Bleed Program
UMC has been a pioneer in injury prevention and lifesaving techniques. Part of this effort is our commitment to the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Campaign. Launched in October 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
