SOUTH YARMOUTH (MA) March 14, 2018 – On March 31, 2018,Cape Cod CPR & First Aid Training will be offering a free, 90-minute “Stop the Bleed” course at its South Yarmouth facility.

Since the 2012 tragedy in Sandy Hook andother mass-casualty incidents,law enforcement, the federal government, and the medical communityhave workedto improvevictimsurvivability.

Victims of these eventsare usually suffering with severe bleeding, which, if left unattended, can result in death.The key to saving lives is providingthose first on the scene withthe skills and basic tools to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation.

No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene.A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. Those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.

Launched in October of 2015 by the White House,“Stop the Bleed” is a nationalgrassroots effort to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.March 31 is “National Stop the Bleed Day.”
