Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action that focuses on educating the public about the vital steps to help save a life to empower them to take action in a bleeding emergency. 

The ABCs of bleeding that the course teaches include:

  • Bleeding - find the bleeding injury
  • Compress - apply presses to stop the bleeding
