Stop the Bleed
Bleeding is one of the most common injuries among survivors of an emergency, and rapid loss of blood can result in death. A person can die from blood loss within five minutes. Those nearest someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care and significantly increase a person’s chance of survival. That is why last year, the City of Pembroke Pines joined the Stop the Bleed Campaign, a national awareness campaign and call to action by the Florida Department of Health aimed at decreasing preventable deaths through bleeding control.
Since joining the campaign, the Pembroke Pines Fire Department began training teachers, city employees and civilians on the use of Bleed Control Kits. They have trained approximately 1,200 people to date and the training continues.
