Lineboro Personnel Provide Training to RVR Staff

June 14, 2019

Today, members from Lineboro provided a Stop The Bleed training course to health staff members at River Valley Ranch. The staff members, who will fill roles from Camp Nurse to Life Guard, participated in the training that provided them with the knowledge and skills to recognize a life threatening hemorrhage, call for additional resources, and provide immediate treatment. Matt Burgan, Captain of EMS for Lineboro, said "arterial wounds can become fatal in as little as three to five minutes, and our ambulance is at least six minutes away. So it's important that the staff members at River Valley Ranch are trained and prepared to respond, because ultimately, they are going to be the immediate responders." An article in The Journal of Emergency Medical Services says that massive hemorrhage is second only to neurologic injury as the cause of death in trauma patients.

If you would like more information on how to Stop The Bleed, or to schedule a training course, contact Lineboro at BleedingControl@Lineborovfd.org.
