December 2, 2017 by  

When there has been an accident or other tragic event, bystanders who have been trained in methods of stopping bleeding can sometimes be able save a life, and a Miami course will equip participants with skills they can use in an emergency.

A bleeding control class is being offered by the Magnan Martial Arts School of Self-Defense, and it will teach participants a variety of skills. They will learn how to use their hands, a dressing or other materials that might be at hand to stop a serious bleed, and they will also be taught about tourniquets. No prior experience is needed.

The event will be facilitated by a staff person from Alexander Outdoors, Inc., and each person who completes the training will be given a certificate of completion. It was developed due to the collaboration of the several federal agencies, and is intended for use in times of emergency, manmade, or natural disasters. Poster printing the crafting of other branded promotional material for a training session like this can be performed by a print company.

The STOP the Bleed course will be held on January 20 at 14291 SW 120th Street in Miami. The registration fee will be $65, and only 15 spaces are available. More details, and an opportunity to sign up can be found on the workshop’s Facebook event listing.
