Quick Actions Can Save a Life - Free Lifesaving Training offered by the Florida Department of Health

By Renay Rouse

July 13, 2022

The Florida Department of Health in Martin County is offering free Stop the Bleed® trainings for community members on July 20 and 23. Only one, one-hour course is needed to complete the training.

A bleeding injury can happen anywhere at any time. The person near a bleeding victim may be the one to assist the victim, until medical personnel arrive. Stop the Bleed® is a nationally recognized program that has trained and empowered millions of people worldwide on how to stop bleeding in a severely injured person until help arrives. The hands-on training will provide techniques, including how to correctly apply a tourniquet.
