Stop The Bleed

Stop The Bleed

           

 

 

 

YOU can help save a life! 

The City of Virginia Beach is offering free classes to educate both first responders and the general public on how to stop severe bleeding and potentially save lives in an emergency.

Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma. The greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured patient, the greater the chances of surviving that injury. You can help save a life by knowing how to stop bleeding if someone, including yourself, is injured. Learn how to make a difference!
