Stop The Bleed Plus (Kennesaw)
Discover the importance of rapid bleeding response through our Stop the Bleed training. Gain essential life-saving skills to be the first to help in emergencies. The course includes national Stop the Bleed material and covers common life-threatening injuries.
A bleeding person can die from blood loss within three to five minutes. Emergency responders will arrive as quickly as possible, but bystanders are almost always there first. Emergency services are often spread thin in the case of disaster and high casualty incidents.
