5.11 ABR Academy – Stop the Bleed


May is National Stop the Bleed Month. Join us in-store at 5.11 Rockville on Saturday, May 18 at 10 am for a free Stop the Bleed course hosted by No Warrior Left Behind.

National Stop the Bleed Month is a grassroots awareness campaign to reduce deaths from bleeding. The Stop the Bleed Program empowers the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control. The program encourages bystanders to become trained and equipped to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. National Stop the Bleed Month is endorsed by American College of Surgeons, NAEMT, ems.gov, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Learn “Life Saving” techniques in bleeding control. Instructor Albert Hance will be providing hands-on training and teaching techniques on trauma care. Attendees will learn proper tourniquet application, wound packing, pressure bandaging, and more.

Seats limited. Please call 5.11 Rockville at (240) 206-6415 to reserve your spot.
