There are now over 450 more people in the Prescott community who know how to effectively stop someone from bleeding out during a medical emergency. On Monday, Sept. 23, every Prescott Unified School District employee went through a crash course in bleeding control. The training program, known as Stop the Bleed, was offered by ICSAVE (Integrated Community Solution to Active Violence Events). The Arizona-based charitable foundation’s mission is to protect communities from preventable injury and death through education, preparedness training and community outreach programs. PUSD superintendent Joe Howard heard about Stop the Bleed last spring when nurses presented on it during a Yavapai County school administrators meeting.
