The Decatur Fire Department now offers a Stop the Bleed training course on the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.
According to a recent press release, Stop the Bleed courses are offered “to train individuals in basic life-saving bleeding control techniques in the event of a life-threatening disaster.”
Taught at the Trinity Fire Station, located at 230 East Trinity Place in Decatur, each training is free and open to the public.
Stop the Bleed was a national campaign that sprouted from action following the mass casualties at Sandy Hook Elementary School back in 2013. In 2017, Georgia became a part of the campaign to better equip communities.
“To date, over 60,000 school personnel have been trained in Georgia,” stated a recent press release. “Decatur City Schools are on track to complete staff training by the end of the first quarter of 2019.”
Before offering a public course, Stop the Bleed worked alongside the Decatur Fire Department to train people in all Decatur’s schools.
