About Stop the Bleed
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
As part of the Stop the Bleed campaign, the American College of Surgeons has developed a nationally standardized curriculum for Basic Bleeding Control Classes. These classes put knowledge gained by the military into the hands of the public to save lives by controlling severe bleeding in emergency situations. These courses are offered nationwide at no cost to attendees.
