A person who is bleeding from a major injury can die from blood loss within five minutes. Stop the Bleed® is a national education campaign that teaches bystanders how to control severe bleeding from a major injury and improve the chances of survival while waiting for the arrival of professional emergency responders.

UC Davis Health is now offering free Stop the Bleed trainings for schools, churches, non-profit organizations, and the public.

This in-person 90-minute class is taught by Trauma Nurse Practitioners and provides education and training on basic bleeding control. Class size depends on instructor availability (limit of 10 students per 1 instructor). Students will learn and practice how to use pressure, packing or a tourniquet to quickly control severe bleeding. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the training.

Due to current COVID-19 precautions, participants will be required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
