Stop the Bleed Classes

Full Description

The top cause of preventable death in trauma is bleeding. 20% of people who have died from traumatic injuries could have survived with quick bleeding control.

National Stop The Bleed Day brings North Metro firefighters and students together for a day of training free of charge.


During Stop the Bleed training, you will learn how to:
  • Determine if an area is safe for you to proceed toward a victim to provide assistance
  • Identify any nearby tools to assist you such as a publicly placed bleeding control kit or everyday items that can be used to control bleeding.
  • Use your hands to apply direct pressure at the site of the wound to stop bleeding
  • Pack a deep wound with cloth or gauze to control bleeding
  • Correctly apply a tourniquet to an injured limb to stop bleeding
  • Keep the victim calm until help arrives
All of the materials used in Stop the Bleed classes are provided through Mile-High RETAC.
