Traumatic bleeding is just one of the many types of emergencies and
disasters any of us can experience. It can happen anywhere to anyone. National Preparedness month is a reminder to get ready for emergencies in case they occur.

Whether it’s learning how to STOP THE BLEED®, ensuring you have an emergency food supply, or reviewing your checklist, September is a great time to take stock.
Preparation is the very nature of what STOP THE BLEED® is all about. We know that everyone in the growing STB community believes that investing the time needed to prepare for the unexpected is worth. This month is a great time to ask your friends and family about whether they are prepared for an emergency. FEMA has a great website that anyone can access to get basic information about how to prepare.
