The “STOP THE BLEED®️” campaign was launched during an event at the White House, to provide bystanders of emergency situations with the tools and knowledge to stop life threatening bleeding. Working with the private sector and nonprofit organizations, the “STOP THE BLEED®️” campaign will put knowledge gained by first responders and our military into the hands of the public to help save lives.
NAEMT participated in the launch of this White House initiative, and has endorsed the STOP THE BLEED®️ campaign. NAEMT was recognized at the launch for its work in developing the Bleeding Control for the Injured (B-Con) course to teach basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe. The course is designed for NON-tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers, and other civilians requiring this basic training.
