“Stop the Bleed” lifesaving training available in Solano County

“Stop the Bleed” lifesaving training available in Solano County

Time is precious in an emergency. An injured or wounded person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within a few minutes. No matter how fast a medical professional arrives on scene, it’s bystanders who may be called on to make a lifesaving difference.

Stop the Bleed is a nationwide federal campaign to train and empower individuals to act quickly and save lives. The campaign is a result of work done by a collaborative committee which included representation from the Department of Homeland Security, American College of Surgeons, and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians just to name a few. Recognizing the need to address the numbers of patients whose lives have been lost in recent tragic mass casualty incidents as a result of blood loss, the committee developed and published recommendations known as the Hartford Consensus. These recommendations have led to initiating the nationwide Stop the Bleed campaign.
