Minutes count and someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as five minutes. Today, on National STOP THE BLEED® Day, we’re reminded how important it is for others to be trained in this lifesaving skill.

The National STOP THE BLEED® Day is a call to action designed to provide everyone with easy access to resources to get trained, get STOP THE BLEED® equipment or to get involved in one of the largest public health campaigns in our country.
