Stop The Bleed is a critical program of the Department of Homeland Security. The one hour free hands on class teaches you critical skills needed to quickly save the life a victim of traumatic bleeding. You will practice lifesaving skills using the recommended tools and trauma manikins. You wil also learn how to improvise using what you have available.

The B-Con course teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe. The course is designed for NON tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians requiring this basic training. The B-Con course is designed for those who have little or no medical training but may be called upon to respond to and deliver trauma care and bleeding control prior to emergency medical services (EMS) arrival or in an austere environment. At the completion of the course, participants will be able to: • Explain the rationale for early use of a tourniquet for life-threatening extremity bleeding. • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg. • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage. • Describe rescue airway control in a trauma patient. • Demonstrate the correct application of a topical hemostatic dressing (combat gauze).
