Stop the Bleed

Stop the Bleed logoAs a part of a national initiative, the University of Georgia Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) is coordinating campus efforts to help “Stop the Bleed.” “Stop the Bleed” is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives.
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.
OEP is in the process of adding bleeding control kits to each Automated External Defibrillator (AED) cabinet on campus. AED cabinets that contain a bleeding control kit will be marked on the outside of the cabinet with a sticker indicating that a “Stop the Bleed” kit is located inside the cabinet. Each kit contains non-expiring items including a CAT tourniquet, an emergency trauma dressing, compressed gauze, 2 pairs of gloves, trauma shears, a marker and an instruction card.AED Cabinet with Stop the Bleed Kit
Additionally, OEP is coordinating two-hour bleeding control classes (B-Con) for interested campus volunteers. For more information on upcoming B-Con classes and/or the “Stop the Bleed” campus program, email prepare@uga.edu or call 706.542.5845.
