You Are the Help Until Help Arrives

Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast. Emergency responders aren’t always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately. You Are the Help Until Help Arrives. 

According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent an injured person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.

Learn how you can help by taking time for yourself or by teaching your community life saving skills until help arrives. Topics Include: 

  • Calling 9-1-1
  • Safety
  • Stop the Bleed - Torniquet Application
  • Positioning the Injured
  • Providing Comfort
  • Preparing to Help 

 

This program is presented by University Hospital Center for Emergency Preparedness and Response for free to residents of New Jersey.  This course is graciously funded by a grant from the New Jersey DOH, Public Health Infrastructure, Laboratories & Emergency Preparedness Division

Bleeding Control - Basic 

Many civilians have expressed interest in taking a bleeding control training course that would empower them to immediately assist victims of active shooter and other intentional mass casualty events at the point of wounding, according to results of a new national poll published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Furthermore, the vast majority of civilians support training and equipping police officers to perform severe bleeding control on victims as soon as possible rather than wait for emergency medical services (EMS) personnel to arrive on the scene. There’s also strong public support for putting bleeding control kits in public places where large crowds gather, similar to the way that automatic external defibrillators are now found in airports and shopping malls for use by responders who have undergone cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

Who can respond and control bleeding?

In addition to training law enforcement officers in bleeding control and instantly providing them with equipment to do so, emergency medical service personnel also need quicker access to the wounded. However, another key element calls for using civilian bystanders as immediate responders who perform external bleeding control for victims at the point of wounding before the arrival of professional responders. This element from the Hartford Consensus is at the core of the “Stop the Bleed” campaign by the Department of Homeland Security through the National Security Council.
