White House Launches “Stop the Bleed” Campaign
On October 6th the White House unveiled its
“Stop the Bleed”
campaign to empower bystanders to act as immediate responders. Working with the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, FEMA, the private sector, nonprofits, and the medical community, the “Stop the Bleed” campaign aims to raise awareness of life saving strategies and provide public access to bleeding control tools already used by first responders and the military. This campaign is the culmination of year-long collaboration among the National Security Council at the White House with partners, such as the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, American College of Surgeons, Hartford Consensus, National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Johnson & Johnson and the Harvard Kennedy School.
