Stop the Bleed
Bleeding Control Basic (B-Con)
- Two-hour training sessions teach people with little or no medical training how to recognize life-threatening bleeding and control it.
- Hands-on training includes life-saving interventions using a tourniquet, gauze pack or clean cloth with mock body parts and a red liquid.
- ‘Training the Trainers’ sessions are available for certified medical personnel who can help bring this important information to their local communities.
