Stop the Bleed
Studies have shown that the help given by an immediate responder can often make the difference between life and death, even before professional rescuers arrive.
Stop the Bleed training is a presentation and hands-on practice of direct pressure application, wound packing, and use of a tourniquet. The course was developed for a nonmedical audience to address the needs of the immediate responder to control life-threatening bleeding until help arrives.
The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office Stop the Bleed training is available for all schools, community organizations, businesses, and religious organizations in Suffolk County. To request this training, please fill out the request form below.
