STOP THE BLEED SCHOOL PROGRAM NEWS
As many of you may already know, The GA Trauma Commission and
the Governor’s Office is supporting the Stop the Bleed
Campaign statewide to train personnel in every school in
the State of GA. So far several of our counties have taken the
initiative and have either started or completed the training in
their respective counties.
However, some counties have yet to start the process. Our goal
is to complete this initiative by June 2018 statewide.
Should you have anyone in your organization, or know someone
that would be an asset to help us teach this program, please
encourage them to email Jaina, Scott and myself that they plan
to attend so we know how many to plan for. The training takes
about an hour or less depending on the number of attendees.
Thank you for you
attention to this matter.
