How to Stop Bleeding

  1. If someone has been seriously injured, call 911 immediately.
  2. Apply pressure with hands to the bleeding site.
  3. Apply a dressing to the wound and press with firm, steady pressure.
  4. Apply a tourniquet if bleeding doesn’t stop. Place the tourniquet 2-3 inches closer to the torso from the bleeding.

Stop the Bleed Kits

Stop the Bleed kits from North American Rescue contain the tools you need to help control bleeding fast.

These guidelines, outlined by the Department of Homeland Security, are simple to perform, but having the right tools can make bleeding control more effective. Stop the Bleed kits include pressure dressings, gauze bandages, tourniquets, and other tools, along with clear, easy to understand instructions to help you in an emergency situation. Stop the Bleed Individual Bleeding Control Kits and Bleeding Control Public Access Stations were developed to be placed in all populated areas, including airports, shopping malls, stores, school classrooms, school buses, sports stadiums, and other public places.

The Importance of Rapid Bleeding Control

Everyone needs to be empowered to be an immediate responder in a crisis situation. Bystanders are usually the first people on the scene, and they can save a life with effective bleeding control.

Whether faced with an accident or an active shooter situation, everyone must be able to “Stop the Bleed.”

According to the Department of Homeland Security, it can take less than five minutes for someone to bleed out. EMS and other forms of help often can take longer to arrive on scene. So it’s vital that everyone has the knowledge and the tools to stop bleeding before it’s too late. The Stop the Bleed campaign is critical to savings lives in America.

Ideally, every public gathering facility should have a Public Access Bleeding Control Station prominently displayed on the wall next to all AED devices and every classroom in America should have an Individual Bleeding Control Kit. These kits are easy to use, effective, and affordable. More importantly – they save lives.

These Public Access Bleeding Control Kit contents meet all standards established by the “Hartford Consensus” and are complaint with the packing list recommended by the “Stop the Bleed” Initiative.

You can be prepared. You can save a life. Make sure that your school can stop the bleed with a Bleeding Control Kit, available from SSI Guardian.
