The Stop the Bleed course was developed following the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newton, Conn. Stop the Bleed focuses on educating our communities with proper training so that they may have the knowledge and skill needed to save a life after an injury such as a laceration or bullet wound. Education includes bleeding control techniques.
