National Stop The Bleed Day is a one day call to action that will take place on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019.
Experts say it takes between 3 - 5 minutes to die from blood loss, while the average time for 1st responders to arrive is 7 to 10 minutes. This is where bystanders can help. People are encouraged to get trained with techniques so they can stop life-threatening bleeding. Incidents, like mass shootings or natural disasters, along with everyday accidents in the home, could expose people to bleed out.
