Stop The Bleed


Stop the Bleed is a nation-wide training initiative with the goal of improving survival from natural and man-made mass casualty events.  Many of the deaths from these events are due to severe bleeding that could be controlled if immediate action was taken.  Unfortunately, in many situations, there is a delay between the time of the injury and the arrival of a medically trained first responder.  In these situations, the civilian responder can be the difference between life and death.

WCEMS is a regional leader in providing Stop the Bleed training.  Participants are trained to recognize and respond immediately to life-threatening bleeding using proven techniques for bleeding control.  This class includes lecture, discussion, the demonstration of techniques, and opportunities for the participants to practice.

We welcome the opportunity to bring Stop the Bleed training to your organization.  For more information, please contact Jim Persons at james.persons@wilco.org or 512-943-3736.  Available training dates may be found on the calendar below as well.
