Did you know that approximately 40% of trauma related eaths are du to hemorrahaging or uncontrolled bleeding? Thanks to the "Stop the Bleed" campaign, with a little training, you can save a life by taking a brief moment to apply a tourniquet.
In an effort to remain prepared for the occurrence of a major event or disaster in our community, the UNO Department of Public Safety is sponsoring two training sessions on Thursday, May 23, 2019 inside the Milo Bail Student Center, room 306. The first session will take place from 11 A.M. - noon and then again from 7 P.M. - 8 P.M.
RSVP's are required no later than May 21 in order to attend. To RSVP, please email Dave Points at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402.554.3700 and leave your name and which session you would like to attend.
During this class you will learn how to recognize when to use direct pressure and when to apply a tourniquet. You will also learn the correct placement and application of a tourniquet. Being able to determine the correct method will allow the prompt application for controlling the flow of blood. Stopping the loss of blood can mean the difference between life and death of the injured person.
