TIME:  1.5 hours
PRESENTER:   Sgt. Drew Dusendang

Life threatening emergencies can happen fast and emergency responders are not always nearby.  Blood loss is the leading cause of preventable death not only in mass casualty events, like mass shootings and terrorist attacks, but also everyday events such as a motorcycle crash, or an industrial accident. Rapid control of bleeding at the scene of the event can be life-saving. In this course, you will learn various ways to provide bleeding control to victims. We encourage our Laker community to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in the first few minutes of an emergency before professional help arrives.
