We’ve had so many people contact us to find out what they can do while we all hunker down due to the COVID-19 Pandemic – turns out there’s a lot you can do!
Right now, a big part of this community is on the front lines of the most challenging Public Health Crisis in any of our lifetimes. Nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals are faced with war time conditions as they work to save the lives of those infected with the COVID-19 virus in hospitals across the country. Likewise, EMTs, police and other first responders are fighting this battle outside of these very same hospitals. They are all heros – every single one of them.
For the rest of us, there’s plenty to do when it comes to STOP THE BLEED®.
We’ve added a new page to our website with a set of things any of us can do – to help ourselves as well as others.
The other change we’ve made pertains to the Trainathon program. Following the advice of the US Department of Defense and the American College of Surgeons, all STOP THE BLEED® hands-on training classes have been suspended until further notice. That means we won’t be able to do the Trainathon this year. Of course, stay tuned to next year!
In the meantime, please do all the things you are supposed to do and help:
