Stop the Bleed: Bleeding Control Course (B-CON)
When faced with an emergency situation, you have the ability to save a life. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be the first on the scene. Anyone at the scene can act as an immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do.
Stop the Bleed is a national campaign started by the American College of Surgeons that supports the Presidential Policy Directive for national preparedness. The campaign offers a course that teaches individuals the proper techniques to stop uncontrolled bleeding after an injury.
