Bayside CPR & AED Training Center has been a pioneer in injury prevention and lifesaving techniques. Part of this effort is our commitment to the Department of Homeland Security “Stop the Bleed” Campaign. Launched in October 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
The Importance of Rapid Bleeding Control
Everyone needs to be empowered to be an immediate responder in a crisis situation. Bystanders are usually the first people on the scene, and they can save a life with effective bleeding control. Whether faced with an accident or an active shooter situation, everyone must be able to “Stop the Bleed.” According to the Department of Homeland Security, it can take less than five minutes for someone to bleed out. EMS and other forms of help often can take longer to arrive on scene. So it’s vital that everyone has the knowledge and the tools to stop bleeding before it’s too late. The Stop the Bleed campaign is critical to savings lives in America.
Ideally, every public gathering facility should have a Public Access Bleeding Control Station prominently displayed on the wall next to all AED devices and every classroom in America should have an Individual Bleeding Control Kit. These kits are easy to use, effective, and affordable. More importantly – they save lives.
These Public Access Bleeding Control Kit contents meet all standards established by the “Hartford Consensus” and are compliant with the packing list recommended by the “Stop the Bleed” Initiative. You can be prepared. You can save a life. Make sure that your school can stop the bleed with a Bleeding Control Kit, available from Bayside CPR & AED Training Center.
