Bothwell Regional Health Center to offer community Stop the Bleed class

Bothwell Regional Health Center will offer a free Stop the Bleed class open to the community on Friday, Dec. 8.

According to the National Trauma Institute, hemorrhaging is responsible for almost 35% of pre-hospital deaths and 40% of deaths in the first 24 hours after a traumatic event. The Stop the Bleed initiative, launched in 2015, seeks to educate and prepare the public to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

The class is from 8 am to noon and will meet in the Bothwell Education Center at 600 E. 14th Street in classrooms two and three.
