Stop The Bleed Program

Anything can happen at any time. Auto accidents, accidents around the home or workplace, manmade and natural disasters, active shooting situations and terrorism are just a few of the things that can cause severe, life-threatening bleeding. If confronted with a co-worker, family member or friend with severe bleeding, would you know what to do? We can help.

There are a few simple steps that you can do that can control life-threatening bleeding and quite possibly save a life!

TRAA has joined the efforts of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in bringing Stop the Bleed training to Fort Wayne and Allen County. Stop the Bleed is a program to train bystanders in what to do in a bleeding emergency until professional help arrives. Bleeding emergencies can take a life very quickly and knowing what to do could very well make you a life-saver!

TRAA is offering Stop the Bleed training to local employers, civic groups, churches, schools and other organizations in Fort Wayne and Allen County. Training includes training on identification of what a bleeding emergency is and how to treat the emergency using simple techniques and supplies. Trainees are even taught proper techniques of tourniquet application.

We are currently offering training to organizations and businesses only at this time and no individual classes are currently being offered.

For more information on having TRAA instructors train your staff, group or community organization, contact or call (260) 423-1436.
