BPD conduct Stop the Bleed Training Session for Bethlehem Central School District personnel

Stop the Bleed Training January 2020

On Thursday, January 16, 2020, Bethlehem Police Department Sergeant Michael Whiteley conducted a training session for Bethlehem Central School District personnel on the topic of Stop the Bleed.  Stop the Bleed is a  national awareness campaign and call-to-action that is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage the public to become trained, and equipped to help in a bleeding emergency, before first responders arrive on the scene.  These critical life-saving skills can be taught in very short time periods.  Stop the Bleed is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus to help prepare you in the event of a bleeding emergency. The only thing more tragic then a death is a death that can be prevented. The Bethlehem Police Department previously hosted a free public Stop the Bleed Training Session at Town Hall in November.  Further classes will be scheduled in the near future, check the Town website for future announcements or sign up to receive Police Press Releases, Home Page News, and more using the Notify Me feature.
