Stop the Bleed campaign saves lives

May 01, 2018 04:20AM ● By BEACON Senior News

Montrose Memorial Hospital nurses and members of local EMS will offer free Stop the Bleed classes to inform and prepare community members for accident scenarios. This effort was launched in 2015 by the federal government after military research identified lack of bleeding control as the primary cause of preventable death. Access to life-saving training and resources is a top priority. Individuals interested in being notified of upcoming classes or having a Stop the Bleed class at their school, church, business or group can call 240-7160 or email [email protected].
