Stop the Bleed
Presented by Joseph A. Ryan

Tuesday, September 18
Stop the Bleed is intended to encourage bystanders to become empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss by any means necessary. Participants will receive “hands on” training in the proper use of direct pressure, wound packing and tourniquets.
Registration is required. To register please call the Pawling Library at 845-855-3444.
