The ‘Stop the Bleed' campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened
by the National Security Council Staff, The White House. The purpose of the campaign
is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives by raising
awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies
and man-made and natural disasters. Advances made by military medicine and research
in hemorrhage control during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have informed the work
of this initiative which exemplifies translation of knowledge back to the homeland
to the benefit of the general public. The Department of the Defense owns the ‘Stop
the Bleed' logo and phrase - trademark pending.” Contact Risk Management for next
available training course.
