Life threatening bleeding can occur from emergency situations in our communities everyday. From vehicle crashes and incidents involving farming equipment or public transportation to accidental injuries from natural disasters like tornadoes or inflicted injuries from intentional acts of violence like shootings and bombings, uncontrolled bleeding can result in death within minutes – even before emergency medical services or other emergency responders can arrive. These first minutes following a traumatic injury are crucial in saving a life.
North American Rescue is leading the way to equip bystanders and initial first responders with the essential medical gear needed to take immediate action in life threatening emergencies.These lifesaving modular aid components are designed for individuals or groups in public buildings and populated public areas to administer immediate bleeding control at the point of wounding.
Prepare yourself and your communities for the unexpected – lives are depending on it…
Life-threatening bleeding warrants immediate intervention. A victim who is bleeding can quickly die before professional emergency responders arrive. Basic bleeding control actions provided by bystanders can often make the difference between life and death.
Be prepared to answer the call! NAR Training now offers a variety of training opportunities that cover approved material from The American Heart Association® for basic bleeding control with courses designed to equip everyday people with the power to save a life from life threatening bleeding.
