“Stop the Bleed” was launched in October 2015 by the White House. It is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
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 5 minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the loss of blood. In an effort to be better prepared for violent events, Stop the Bleed uses lifesaving skills learned from military battlefields in an effort to prepare people how to assist in trauma emergencies.
Don Zimmerman is a retired firefighter- paramedic who is now an Instructor for University Hospitals and provides emergency management planning for four of the UH Hospitals.
