Stop the Bleed provides strategies, guidance and practical skills to handle a trauma related bleeding situation from an active shooter or everyday life. Stop the Bleed was created after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012.

Each course can be modified for a business or organization to meet their needs as well and can be delivered anywhere and delivered upon request. For more information or to register, call Assistant Fire Marshal Michelle Toutaint at 757-565-7607.
