Stop the Bleed
Stop the Bleed was added to our free classes for citizens in 2018. The initiative was created by the American College of Surgeons to teach bleeding control. The theory is to teach non-medical personnel how to properly pack wounds and use tourniquets in case of an active shooter or other mass casualty event. We currently have two instructors, Officer Jon Friederich and Officer Alicia Compton, who provide the proper techniques to save lives during this two hour course. The classes are held at various times throughout the year and all participants are given a free tourniquet to take home.
