How do you  stop a person from bleeding to death? It can be as simple as ABC:

Alert: call 9-1-1
Bleeding: find the bleeding injury
Compress: apply pressure to stop the bleeding

We were thrilled to introduce Stop the Bleed® training to B.C. in our training blitz! 

TSBC partnered with Society of Professionals in Emergency Care and BC Emergency Health Services to bring training to almost 200 people in 9 locations across B.C on May 23.
