PHOTOS: Stop the Bleed, a registered trademark of the United States Department of Defense, trains people to be better prepared to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding.
In the Tri-state area, Stop The Bleed has been taught on 25 campuses and last week, the training was held at the Needles School campus cafeteria.
“We have three more training sessions over the next couple of Fridays and we have hit every school in the area,” said Lynn Lozada of CareFlight/Air Methods, an air ambulance program. “We wanted to bring bleeding control kits to every single school because, in the event of a mass casualty situation or shooting, we go on lockdown. So if somebody is shot they’re going sit in that classroom until the police have told us that EMS can enter and render aid.
