The US Department of Defense (“DoD”) STOP THE BLEED® program is a public health campaign designed to train and equip private citizens to be able to save the lives of people who have suffered a traumatic injury involving severe blood loss.
Big changes to the DoD STOP THE BLEED® Licensing Program
DoD issues STOP THE BLEED® Educational Licenses to qualified organizations that agree to teach DoD approved bleeding control techniques. The DoD’s licensing program now includes a streamlined application process and access to a variety of free training materials and other resources. The program is available to any organization seeking to implement or grow their STOP THE BLEED® program as well as organizations planning to offer STOP THE BLEED® classes to their community.
