No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.
"Stop the Bleed" is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives.
Remember to be aware of your surroundings and move yourself and the injured person to safety, if necessary.
