Bleeding Control (4-6 Hours)

The Bleeding Control course (BCON) was motivated by the 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary and multiple tragedies that have occurred since that time. With what is known as the Hartford Consensus, leaders in law enforcement, representatives from the federal government, and the medical community convened to  address the issue of survivability from traumatic injuries during man made or natural mass casualty events. The resulting information concluded that survivable injuries that resulted in fatalities often were related to severe bleeding, which when left unattended to in a timely manner, caused the death of the casualties. The consensus concluded that by providing first responders (LE, Fire, EMS) and Civilian bystanders with the basic skills and equipment to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation, lives would be saved. Skills the student will learn consist of the proper application of tourniquets as first line life-saving interventions as well as proper application of packing gauze/ hemostatic agents to areas of uncontrolled bleeding.   

   *Students will also receive a Tourniquet upon completion of this training.
