Stop the Bleed

CPR training is a crucial first step in emergency preparedness, but bleeding control is also a critical skill. Stop the Bleed works within Presidential Directive 8 on national preparedness to train civilians on bleeding control, tourniquet usage, and emergency response. It’s not CPR, but it might save a life. They offer courses around the nation.

First-aid training is a great way to give yourself a refresher on the best ways to respond to different emergency situations. Most CPR certifications are good for 12–15 months and first-aid certifications can be good for up to three years. In an emergency, it’s crucial to call 911 as quickly as possible or get to your nearest urgent care center.
