Emergency first responders are trained in a variety of life-saving skills. But what about the typical person who may inadvertently find themselves the first person on the scene of an emergency?
Trumbull EMS and various other agencies including police and medical services, held a training class Monday on treating serious bleeding. While no substitute for proper EMS training, the class showed those in attendance what to do while waiting for help to arrive. The event was part of a national movement promoted by American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma and publicized through the website bleedingcontrol.org.
