Stop the Bleed Training

The University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP) will host a free training to show community members how to stop bleeding in an emergency situation. “Stop the Bleed” training is part of a nationwide campaign by the American College of Surgeons to raise awareness about preventing death from blood loss in emergency situations. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. This means the public can be a vital part of saving lives when emergency responders are on their way.
