Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. It is intended to promote community efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency because a person with a life-threatening injury from a motor vehicle collision, a stab wound or a gunshot wound can bleed to death before first responders arrive. The bystander acts as the first responder and are the first point of contact in the chain of survival.
