Stop the Bleed

We are excited to be a part of FSU's Stop the Bleed campaign! and offer this training opportunity to the faculty, staff, & students of FSU's campus! Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action to train, equipt, and empower bystanders to help control a bleeding emergency until professional help arrives. Similar to how the general public is trained on how to perform CPR, it is important for the public to learn proper bleeding control techniques. The FSU Stop the Bleed campaign is a collaborative effort between University Health Services/Medical Response Unit, FSU Emergency Management, and campus partners. Several student & staff members of the MRU have undergone the training to become certified Stop the Bleed instructors and are available to present this course to interested groups, organizations, & departments campus-wide by request (see link below).

Course Description:

This free 2-hour course is designed to train participants on what to do in a bleeding emergency and teaches the ABCs of bleeding control as a method to stop an active bleeding emergency. The course includes a class presentation and hands-on skills demonstration on tourniquet application, wound packing, and pressure dressing application. At the conclusion of the course, participants will receive a nationally recognized certificate of completion. This class is currently open to all faculty, staff, & students of Florida State University.
