Stop the Bleed
As part of a national initiative, SMU’s Office or Risk Management and Police Department coordinates campus efforts to “Stop the Bleed”. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person with traumatic bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. Learn more at https://youtu.be/qBrMU0sLoHQ and by attending Stop the Bleed.
