The STOP THE BLEED® Project is a public/private partnership led by the DoD and many other stakeholders designed to develop programs that will create more awareness of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign and encourage the public to participate in the campaign by becoming STOP THE BLEED® trained and equipped and engaging others to do so. There are currently active STOP THE BLEED® training programs in every U.S. state and territory and in 114 countries.
The STOP THE BLEED® campaign is administered by the Defense Health Agency and the Combat Casualty Care Research Program. All uses of the STOP THE BLEED® name and logo are licensed to ensure that all bleeding control training programs and all products that display the STB logo meet DoD quality standards.
The Coalition is a proud supporter of the STOP THE BLEED® project, providing financial and other resources to the programs described below.
This fast growing program, now active in over 70 countries, consists of individuals who are passionate about STOP THE BLEED®. Ambassadors engage their community to learn about how anyone can be prepared to save a life by becoming trained and equipped. They are provided with outreach tools and receive special perks for the work that they do. Find out more about the program and how to apply to become a STOP THE BLEED® Ambassador.
With a goal of training 200 million people to STOP THE BLEED® , it’s critical to ensure that as many groups as possible have the ability to train with the proper training equipment. This year’s program has expanded to include grants for both training kits and a variety of other DoD licensed STOP THE BLEED® equipment. These grants are valued from $1,000 to $100,000. The application period is open and runs until midnight, May 31, 2023. Applicants must be organizations based in the United States.
The Coalition has provided funding for this hugely successful program, which offers scholarship opportunities each spring to high school students in the United States. Scholarships consist of a monetary award to the student and STOP THE BLEED® kits to the schools they attend.
The Trainathon is a month-long call to action for the public to take an approved STOP THE BLEED® training course during May 2023, National STOP THE BLEED® Month.
Approved STOP THE BLEED® instructors can register classes they plan to teach on the STOP THE BLEED® Training Platform so people can sign up and take their class.
