STOP the BLEED! + Trauma Triage

STOP the BLEED! + Trauma Triage

For April's EMS training topic, bleeding control, and just in time for wildland & dispatch season and all of our outdoor activities that take place over the summer, let's review the fundamentals of bleeding control. Stop the Bleed is a civilian awareness program, much like bystander CPR, and is effective at reaching a wide audience and simplifying these concepts down to actionable basics that anyone can perform. As such, for ALL of our level of providers there is value, and when it is one of our own, remembering this simple training could help us focus and save a life.

Section 2 will review triage, START, and 30-2-can-do with some practice scenarios!
