October 18 - "Stop the Bleed"

Updated on Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 @ 4:03pm

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.

Trevor Williams, Mount Vernon Fire Department will present.  

Trevor Williams was raised in Mount Vernon, Ohio, has volunteered with College Township Fire Department since 2006, and worked at Mount Vernon Fire Department since May of 2007.
