What is Stop The Bleed?

Today we live in a world where terrorism, the actions of unstable people, and the dangerous impulses of friends and relatives are very real and becoming increasingly more frequent.

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed, can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.  However, anyone at the scene can act as immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do. Using information published at www.BleedingControl.org, which supports Presidential Policy Directive 8 for national preparedness, Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department aims to assist with the education of those who live, work, and commute through our response area.

Information on Tourniquets

When direct pressure on a wound is not enough to control the bleeding, it's sometimes necessary to apply a tourniquet.  It's important to remember that the application of a tourniquet will cause some discomfort, but it is necessary in order to stop potentially life-threatening bleeding.  To apply a tourniquet, follow these steps:

  • Wrap the tourniquet around the bleeding arm or leg about 2 to 3 inches above the bleeding site
    • Be sure NOT to place the tourniquet onto a joint—go above the joint if necessary
  • A- Pull the free end of the tourniquet to make it as tight as possible, then secure the free end.
  • B- Twist or wind the windlass until bleeding stops.
  • C- Secure the windlass to keep the tourniquet tight.
  • D- Note the time the tourniquet was applied.
