Hall central office personnel participate in 'Stop the Bleed' training

By AccessWDUN Staff

Members of the district office staff at the Hall County Board of Education took part in a training session recently that is part of the national “Stop the Bleed’ campaign.

Mamie Coker, Health Services Coordinator for the Hall County Schools, organized the training in cooperation with the Region 2 Regional Trauma Advisory Council. The district is on track to have training complete and to have bleeding control kits delivered to all schools by the end of the current school year.

The “Stop the Bleed” campaign is a national initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus which helps train and prepare people to respond rapidly in the event they are witness to an emergency bleeding situation.  It was launched in Georgia last year.

The Georgia General Assembly approved one million dollars in funding to train and equip all Georgia public schools with bleeding control kits. The kits are designed to enable bystanders to control life-threatening bleeding and provide immediate care to the injured while awaiting the arrival of professional responders. The bleeding control kits contain a tourniquet, wound packing materials, and gloves to prevent further exposure.
