Stop the Bleed is a national program that teaches the basic actions to stop life-threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made or natural disasters before professional help arrives. Advances made by military medicine and research in hemorrhage control have informed the work of this initiative. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency.
Classes are free and open to the public. Times for all classes are 11 am – 12 pm.
Classes take place in the UMC Conference Center, Room D. Please arrive 10 minutes early before the scheduled class.
