Life-saving training with Stop the Bleed Campaign
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
The St. John's Regional Trauma Center is providing free life-saving training.
It is part of the "Stop The Bleed" campaign that was put in place after the school shooting in Sandy Hook in 2012. St. John's says there is a need for civilians to be taught these basic but very helpful skills because it could save a life. These are basic life saving techniques anyone can use if there's ever an emergency.
"So the whole key to this is to train the public on basic bleeding control concepts. The first person to put hands on a patient has the greatest chance of saving a life," said Tina Molohon, trauma program coordinator at St. John's.
