Event Types

As shootings and other mass casualty incidents are on the rise, a new movement is gaining momentum to counteract the devastating effects of these events. Instead of running away, Americans are responding to a call to act, to become equipped to respond and save life and limb from further injury or loss. Thousands of people are enrolling in courses to learn the basics– very simple ways they can “Stop the Bleed,” and save lives and limbs.

The Stop the Bleed campaign was launched by the White House in 2015 and represents the joint efforts of the American College of Surgeons, FEMA and the US Department of Homeland Security to equip bystanders to become immediate responders. Hospitals, schools, and EMS around the country have joined the call to provide training on bleeding control to first responders and lay people, and to place bleeding control kits in public places, much as AEDs are commonly found.
