DCPH Teaching Stop the Bleed Training

Delaware County Public Health will be teaching a “Stop the Bleed” training. 

Emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time, especially life-threatening accidents that cause serious blood loss. You can become an immediate responder by taking this training, which will give you the knowledge to be able to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control blood loss. 

Delaware County Public Health will teach the “Stop the Bleed” training in-person with materials to demonstrate bleeding control techniques. Once your training is complete, you’ll be qualified to train others. 

“We are excited to assist our community with this training opportunity,” shares Krystle DeShaw, DCPH Supervisor. “Our goal is to empower our residents to be able to act quickly in an emergency to help – even if they are not a fully trained first responder. Every second counts in an emergency and you can make a difference.”

For more information about the “Stop the Bleed” training, visit stopthebleed.org or call Public Health at 927-7551.
