Stop the Bleed

A national awareness campaign and a call to action

Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. With the significant increase in violence, an traumatic event can happen anywhere in public areas, but trauma can also occur in home, automobiles, ATV, motorcycle, and industrial accidents.
