Free training in our community

Genesis Emergency & Trauma Services is offering training throughout the community as part of the Stop the Bleed campaign. Stop the Bleed is a national campaign to provide bystanders in emergency situations the tools and knowledge to stop life-threatening bleeding. 

The campaign by the American College of Surgeons was developed after the Sandy Hook school tragedy. If bleeding is severe, it can kill within minutes – possibly before trained responders arrive. Providing bystanders with tools and information on how to stop the life-threatening bleeding can save lives.

Funding for the Stop the Bleed campaign was made possible through a grant from the Genesis HealthCare System Foundation, the Muskingum County commissioners and the Muskingum Medical Academy. If you’d like more information about the Stop the Bleed campaign, call Rebecca Geyer at (740) 455-7659.
