The Greendale Health Dept. is excited to offer “Stop the Bleed” training.
Did you know that trauma is the number one cause of death for Americans under the age of 45, and it is estimated that 1 of 5 of these deaths is preventable. While active attacker situations have been a driving force behind the Stop the Bleed program a person is more likely to experience life-threatening bleeding in an accident at work, home or on the road. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. With the appropriate training and resources, you could be the difference between life and death for a stranger, co-worker, friend, or family member. This class will include lecture and hands-on training in tourniquet application, wound packing, and pressure dressings.
