LAMOURE, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The community of LaMoure will be receiving a unique training opportunity on Thursday, December 13th.
“Stop the Bleed” is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. It is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
“No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on scene,” states EMT Leader Kelli Just. “A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.”
LaMoure will be bringing in the training opportunity on Thursday, December 14th at the Emergency Response Center in LaMoure. Dr. Mary Aaland from UND School of Medicine will be presenting the course. A “Train the Trainer” class will begin at 6 PM. The “Stop the Bleed” trainings will be 7 and 8 PM.
“This one hour training is open to the public, free of charge, and all ages from school age on up are encouraged to attend,” Just pointed out.
Class size is limited and you must pre-register by calling or texting Kelli at 701-238-8410.
