Stop the Bleed Training

The Emergency Preparedness Committee for the City of Takoma Park is offering a one-hour course on how you can control severe bleeding due to an accident or intentional harm. The techniques taught will show various ways to control severe bleeding on someone using just your two hands, to someone that has access to a full trauma kit.

Classes are held in the Azalea Room of the Community Center, 7500 Maple Ave, Takoma Park Md. Limit 25, must be 16 years of age or older.


If you have questions about the class.

Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma. The sooner the severe bleeding is controlled the greater the chance someone has surviving. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Stop the Bleed® program continues to empower the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control.
