BleedingControl.org explains the unfortunate necessity of Stop the Bleed training:
Today we live in a world where terrorism, the actions of unstable people, and the dangerous impulses of friends and relatives are very real and becoming increasingly more frequent.
Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.
In 2018, CPR Saturday is happy to partner with Stop the Bleed!
Classes last approximately an hour and start every half hour:
You can register for one of the Stop the Bleed courses at www.billingsclinic.com/classes or by calling (406) 255-8410.
If there are open seats, you are welcome to join a class even if you didn't preregister.
