In an emergency, would you know how to help someone who is bleeding? During a life-threatening situation, anyone at the scene can act as immediate responder and help save a life.
"It is the bystander who will most likely be the immediate responder and can have the greatest impact on stopping bleeding and saving a life."
Jewish Community Federation is proud to offer free "Stop the Bleed" training to teach simple bleeding control techniques that can help save lives. Offered by our Security Community Network Regional Security Advisor Dave Brackins, the class is open to the public and all are welcome, including those without medical training.
The skills learned in a Stop the Bleed class are taught throughout the country to military, medical, and law enforcement personnel, but the usefulness of the skills extends to everybody.
The program is taught in 2 hours and consists of a lecture and hands-on skills stations.
Sign up by contacting Dave Brackins at Dbrackins@Jewishrichmond.org. Space is limited.
