Stop the Bleed: Bleeding Control for the Injured

stop the bleed page banner

Stop the Bleed is a national campaign launched by the White House in 2015 with two main goals:

  • Inform and empower the general public to become trained on basic trauma care in order to stop or slow bleeding during emergencies.
  • Increase bystander access to bleeding control kits.

As part of the agency's training and preparedness goals, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is working to make Bleeding Control Basic courses more readily available throughout Indiana.
