No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, so quickly stopping the bleeding is critical. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide immediate care if they are equipped with the appropriate training and resources.
The Stop the Bleed initiative brought together a number of Federal agencies, non-profit organizations and corporations to develop and disseminate resources to train the public in bleeding control.
The Stop the Bleed initiative began as a collaborative effort headed up by the White House that included a number of Federal agencies, including the NHTSA Office of EMS, as well as national organizations and corporations.
