“Stop the Bleed” trains participants to recognize life-threatening bleeding and to respond quickly and effectively using three methods of bleeding control. Life-threatening bleeds can happen from either a natural or intentional wound. Participants learn how to act immediately to save themselves or someone else.
Approximately 60 to 70 faculty and staff members received the interactive training March 17 in the high school gymnasium in Ashland.
“This important training prioritizes the safety of our students and staff,” said Candi Shaver, superintendent of the A-C Central school district. “We appreciate the funding from the Jacksonville Memorial Foundation to provide this opportunity. Learning and practicing these first aid methods is valuable preparation for potential crises.”
