Stockpile Defense Medical Presents STOP THE BLEED
We are excited to announce the first segment in our medical training offered here at Stockpile Defense. Starting in August, we will be hosting a new medical training event called Stop the Bleed. This course is taught by a nationally certified Stop the Bleed instructor, Brad Richards, who has worked in the wildland fire community and is a current NREMT.
Why Is this Course Being Offered?
The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma is leading the effort to save lives by teaching the civilian population to provide a vital initial response to stop uncontrolled bleeding in emergencies. Stop the Bleed® Training is an interactive training program, that provides the foundation for implementing lifesaving initiatives. The STB training program will prepare you to respond to and mitigate life-threatening injuries in a hostile related environment. STB training will teach you to be more prepared and proficient in severe bleeding control and life-saving techniques.
The course is founded on the principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) a. curriculum is consistent with the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines and meets the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus document on improving survival from active shooter events. The Hartford Consensus, in collaboration with the American College of Surgeons (ACS), emphasizes that no one should die from uncontrolled bleeding.
