Stop The Bleed is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly to save lives.  According the the Department of Homeland Security, it can take less than five minutes for someone to bleed out after an accident.  EMS and other forms of emergency rescue often take longer to arrive on the scene.  It is vital that everyone has the knowledge and the tools to stop bleeding before it is too late.  The Stop the Bleed Campaign is critical to saving lives in America.

The training is sponsored by Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and St. Lucie Public Schools.   Each participant completing the training will receive a Stop the Bleed kit for their school free of charge.   The targeted audience for the training is teachers, bus drivers, food service employees, security officials, and administrators.

The training is approximately 2 hours in length and participation is voluntary.
Registration is now available in Frontline for participants to register.  All scheduled trainings will be held at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center located at 1700 S 23rd Street in Fort Pierce.  If you have a special request for training  for your staff at your school location or for students in your medical academies,  please let me know and I will see if that can be accommodated.
