The number one cause of preventable death after injury is bleeding. For this reason, everyone in our community should know how to STOP THE BLEED®.
A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. In fact, we’ve seen it in our homes, in our community, and in the news. Life-threatening bleeding can happen while cooking, working in the yard, or from injuries sustained in serious accidents or disasters.
Community Safety & Response Educators (CSRE) wants you to move from witness to immediate responder with the confidence that you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.
During this community focused course, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding. Become empowered to make a life or death difference the next time a bleeding emergency happens.
CSRE offers the STOP THE BLEED® course free of charge to the community. While instructors volunteer their time to instruct the course, a suggested honorarium of $5.00 per student is welcome to help defray the cost off course materials and equipment wear.
While the STOP THE BLEED® course is offered regularly in the CSRE Classroom, located on Parham Road between Broad Street and I-64, if you would like our instructors to bring this course to your group or organization, please complete the form below.
