Stop the Bleed & Start the Heart is a nationwide movement that aims to teach everyone how to be a first responder in a bleeding emergency, whether the bleeding is caused by a kitchen accident or a large-scale disaster. Being able to control external bleeding is key to victim survival. Our three-hour course teaches participants how to apply tourniquets and direct pressure, and to bandage wounds.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is another skill that can save a life. Basic CPR allows bystanders to provide lifesaving circulation until help arrives. CPR skills are taught using the American Heart Association Friends and Family program.


  • Friday, February 21, 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
  • Friday, March 6, 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Please note that the Stop the Bleed classes originally scheduled for April 24 and May 22 have been cancelled due to growing community concerns regarding COVID-19.
