Stop the Bleed: Bleeding Control for the Injured
Stop the Bleed is a national campaign launched by the White House in October 2015 with two main goals:
- Inform and empower the general public to become trained on basic trauma care in order to stop or slow bleeding during emergencies.
- Increase bystander access to bleeding control kits.
As part of the agency's training and preparedness goals, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is working to make Bleeding Control Basic courses more readily available throughout Indiana.
Bleeding Control Courses
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has bleeding control training kits available to loan to local organizations. These kits assist organizations in administering free Stop the Bleed Bleeding Control Basic courses to Hoosier communities.
Businesses or organizations interested in loaning the bleeding control training kits should fill out the Training Kit Request Form.
