Spectrum Health Healthier Communities
665 Seward Ave NW
Did you know a person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes? In an emergency, time is precious—including the moments before help arrives. With the rise of mass shootings and active shooter situations in schools, churches, public meeting places, and even office buildings, it is important that more individuals are trained in basic lifesaving techniques. The Stop the Bleed campaign is a nationwide push to educate the public on proper ways to help stop active bleeding from a wound in an emergency situation. It teaches techniques that include applying a tourniquet or chest seal, stuffing a wound and applying pressure while waiting for help to arrive. Join the Spectrum Health Trauma Department and learn the skills that, if needed, could save a life. To learn more about this nationwide program, go online to bleedingcontrol.org.
