This one-hour session will cover two parts:
Part One: Stop The Bleed Stop The Bleed training follows a national initiative and teaches bystanders how to quickly control bleeding in the aftermath of a traumatic event. Participants will be taught how to save a life by applying pressure, as well as how to properly use a tourniquet. When given immediately, controlling bleeding can often make the difference between life and death.
Part Two: Run, Hide, Fight Run, Hide, Fight was implemented by the Department of Homeland Security as a “whole community” approach to raise awareness and provide knowledge of what to do in an active shooter situation. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Since incidents vary, it is important to learn and understand when and how to utilize run, hide or fight.
