STOP THE BLEED SCHOOL PROGRAM NEWS

As many of you may already know, The GA Trauma Commission and the Governor’s Office is supporting the Stop the Bleed Campaign statewide to train personnel in every school in the State of GA. So far several of our counties have taken the initiative and have either started or completed the training in their respective counties.

However, some counties have yet to start the process. Our goal is to complete this initiative by June 2018 statewide.

Should you have anyone in your organization, or know someone that would be an asset to help us teach this program, please encourage them to email Jaina, Scott and myself that they plan to attend so we know how many to plan for. The training takes about an hour or less depending on the number of attendees.
