May 2019 is the first ever National Stop the Bleed Month.

May 23 is the second annual National Stop the Bleed Day.

During this month and on this day...

· This nationwide campaign will highlight the importance of Stop the Bleed training and provide the public with information and education through local fire, EMS, and health care professionals.

· FREE Bleeding Control Basics classes will be offered to the public, furthering the goal of the American College of Surgeons to train everyone in the U.S. about what to do during a bleeding emergency.

· Many of our thousands of registered instructors will participate in this grassroots effort by leading hundreds of courses in the United States, with additional course offerings in other countries.
