Stop the Bleed Training Continues on Lower Cape with Course in January

ORLEANS – We may be approaching the dead of winter, but the Orleans Citizens Forum is continuing to hold “Stop the Bleed” training program to educate as many beachgoers as possible before next beach season.

“Stop the Bleed” is a campaign to teach civilians — including school-age kids — to come to the rescue of people injured in accidents and shootings.

A National Emergency Services program, “Stop the Bleed” was featured on 60 Minutes in November.

Orleans Fire Chief Tony Pike and OFD personnel will conduct the program with hands-on training. The program is open to all Lower Cape residents.

Due to the nature of the program, class size is limited to 25 participants.  Additional registrants may be able to observe and will be contacted at a later date.

This “Stop the Bleed” training session is scheduled for January 17 at the Orleans Senior Center from 3:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Hopeful participants can register online or by calling the Orleans Fire Department.
