This afternoon (1:00 Eastern) First Aid Mart will proudly be participating in the Public Announcement of the Bystander “Stop the Bleed” initiative at the White House.

The ”Stop the Bleed” objectives:

  • The general public will know the phrase and associated logo: “Stop the Bleed
  • The general public will be able to have access to lifesaving bleeding control kits at home and in public places.
  • Every bleeding control kit will provide “just in time” audio and visual training

The purpose of this signature event is to celebrate actions by federal and private sector partners to create meaningful and lasting impact in support of bystanders as immediate responders in stopping life threatening bleeding.

While the program endeavors to involve any bystander, trained in bleeding control or not, it never hurts to learn a little. Here are some helpful articles to get you started:
