Stop the Bleed Training

Stop the Bleed continues to empower the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control.

During Stop the Bleed training, you will learn how to: 

  • Determine if an area is safe for you to proceed toward a victim to provide assistance
  • Identify any nearby tools to assist you such as a publicly placed bleeding control kit or everyday items that can be used to control bleeding. 
  • Use your hands to apply direct pressure at the site of the wound to stop bleeding 
  • Pack a deep wound with cloth or gauze to control bleeding
  • Correctly apply a tourniquet to an injured limb to stop bleeding 
  • Keep the victim calm until help arrives
