Are you prepared to assist a victim experiencing major blood loss?

Non-medical bystanders can help save lives by providing immediate bleeding control principles and aid until first responders arrive. Stop the Bleed is a FREE class offered by Franciscan Health. The hourlong class is a combination of lectures and hands-on training on woundpacking and tourniquet use to train, equip and empower the bystander in the critical first minutes after a trauma injury that causes bleeding.

• Professional FREE hands on training on blood loss techniques
• Lecture by expert in the field
• Information on how to obtain bleeding control kits

Classes are FREE, however registration is required online. Class size is limited to 20 participants.

If your company or organization would like to host a Stop The Bleed Training Class, contact Christy Claborn, MSN, RN, CEN, trauma program manager at Franciscan Health Indianapolis. Business/Community training events are forming now.

Stop the Bleed was developed by the Hartford Consensus (a collaboration of public safety organizations, law enforcement and the government), who recognized the need to educate the public on how to prevent people from dying in a life-threatening, bleeding emergency, as a response to the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy and multiple tragedies since.
