South Routt Medical Center sponsors Stop The Bleed class

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The South Routt Medical Center is sponsoring a Stop The Bleed class at 5 and 6:30 p.m. Oct. 24 at the Oak Creek Town Hall.

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.

Stop The Bleed is a simple class designed for everyone that takes less than an hour to complete. The two classes are open to all ages. Participants can register at http://www.uchealth.org/events.
