Stop the Bleed CO

Stop the Bleed classes educate people on how to stop a life-threatening bleeding emergency. This can happen at home, at work, in a vehicle accident, at a mass casualty event or even in recreational settings. The class includes lessons on first aid techniques, including the use of pressure to control and stop a bleeding wound, as well as the safe use of a tourniquet.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has developed this class in response to emergencies where lives might have been saved if bystanders had the proper training to treat bleeding victims while waiting for first responders. These emergencies can happen at any point in everyday life - at home, at work, in a recreational setting, a traffic accident or a mass shooting.

Samaritan staff who have completed training and certification through the ACS will lead the classes.
