Buffalo Council Member Ulysees O. Wingo Sr. and American Medical Response, a leader in the delivery of 911 emergency and non-emergency interfacility transportation throughout Erie and Niagara counties, will offer two free “Stop the Bleed” trainings to Buffalo-area residents. The trainings, which will be held this Saturday at Delavan-Grider Community Center, are focused on empowering individuals to help in bleeding emergencies.
A press release noted, “ ‘Stop the Bleed’ training is a hands-on class that teaches the basics of identifying and treating life-threatening bleeding using tourniquets, wound packing and pressure dressings. A person can die from blood loss within five minutes, so it’s important to quickly stop the bleeding. Bystanders can take simple steps to keep an injured person alive until the appropriate medical care is available.”
Training is set for 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, June 25, at Delavan-Grider Community Center, 877 E. Delavan Ave.
