Why: To save a life!
Elm Grove EMS is hosting a FREE class to educate the public on how to recognize and treat life-threatening traumatic bleeding before help arrives. The in-person 90 minute class is open everyone ages 10+ and will cover techniques to stop bleeding, sufficient wound packing, and proper application of tourniquets.
A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We've all seen it happen too often—on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.
A STOP THE BLEED® course is for people who are interested in learning this lifesaving skill. The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® campaign has trained over 1 million people including students, teachers, and community groups. We are committed to training anyone who is old enough to understand what the course teaches and is interested in learning how to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.
