“Stop the Bleed” Trainings and Stations Coming to D5!

Thank you to Sandy Motzer, Susanna Cunningham, Ann Forest for all of their hard work to share Stop the Bleed training and tools in North Seattle! They installed life-saving “Stop the Bleed” stations in the Lake City Community Center and the Meadowbrook Community Center, thanks to a $5,000 Neighborhood Matching Fund award they applied for and won from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

#StopTheBleed is a nationwide campaign to train bystanders how to prevent people from bleeding to death in an emergency situation such as a shooting, car crash, or earthquake. I hope you never have to use the training, but it’s so important. In such a situation, bystanders become the first line of defense when an injured person might not be able to access trained medical professionals in time. Considering that a person can bleed to death in less than five minutes, this training is just a crucial as learning CPR.

“The more people who know how to prevent themselves from being a victim and the more people who know what to do to help stop life-threatening bleeding, the better.” I couldn’t agree more, Sandy!
