Bleeding Control for Emergency Service Providers

Emergency Service Providers are skilled in administering life-saving skills in the case of an accident or mass casualty event; however, many seek training to master advanced bleeding control techniques. This course serves two important needs. First, it focuses on the skills Emergency Service Providers need to refine their advanced bleeding control techniques in a variety of emergency situations.

Secondly, it helps Emergency Service Providers become more effective partners to community responders when they arrive on scene. Emergency Service Providers will review basic skills that a community responder will utilize and explore the best transition of care from a community responder to trained emergency response professionals.
