RAPID CITY, S.D. — You by no means know when an emergency state of affairs might come up.
To put together for these conditions, Pennington County Emergency Management is holding a cease the bleed class on Thursday evening.
Pennington county consultants say that in traumatic occasions, like a automotive crash, mass capturing or searching accident, you may bleed out in minutes.
The class covers methods to cease main bleeding, with methods that embrace tourniquets, wound packing and even tying a t-shirt to cease the bleeding.
Instructors of the class say that the most essential factor is to cease the bleeding, but in addition make sure that first responders are on their means.
“Tell another person to name 911 and don’t say any person name 911, level any person out so it provides them the accountability. ‘You inform them’ you name 9-1-1,” stated Mark Enright, the Training and Exercise Specialist with Pennington County Emergency Management.
The class is for anybody that wish to take part.
It begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Pennington County Administration constructing on Thursday, July 14 and lasts till about 8:30 p.m.
