Stop The Bleed

Injuries are the leading cause of death among Americans ages 1 through 44 — whether from a motor vehicle crash, falling from a roof while cleaning gutters, a serious cut from a home project or intentional violence. When injuries involve uncontrolled bleeding, death can happen in mere minutes.

Every second counts in a trauma situation. That's where you can help. The first step when encountering an injured person is to call 911.

STOP THE BLEED® is a national campaign of the U.S. Department of Defense. It recognizes that a bystander like you, an "immediate responder," could be an injured person's only chance for survival — whether that person is a family member, friend or a stranger. You can help control bleeding until first responders arrive and take over.
