Mercy Health – St. Vincent’s Trauma Program is offering “Stop the Bleed” training to individuals on Monday, November 18 at 6:30 pm at Way Library. There is no charge, but advance registration is required by calling the library at 419-874-3135, extension 119 or registering online at waylibrary.info.

We all hope a tragedy never occurs, but as violence increases in the world, so does the need for responsive-action training. Motivated by the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy, “Stop the Bleed,” an initiative to prevent excessive bleeding in emergencies, was established by the American College of Surgeons to limit deaths from violent injuries. By teaching citizens how to act as immediate responders, they can limit the trauma from severe blood loss and help save lives.

Injuries can happen at any time. In an emergency, immediately receiving care can be the difference between life and death. The following ABC procedure is encouraged to prolong a person’s life:

1. Stay safe and ALERT 9-1-1
2. Find the Bleeding
3. Compress
“Stop the Bleed” education is vitally important. Training programs and public awareness campaigns such as CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver have helped save many lives. “Stop the Bleed” can do the same by giving people the knowledge and skills to respond to a bleeding emergency. Hands-on training will give people the confidence to assist someone in a life threating situation until help arrives.
