TIME: 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm EST
St. Vincent StatFlight, in collaboration with Crane Credit Union and Daviess Community Hospital, will present “Stop the Bleed” training for the Washington Community School system faculty. This hands-on course teaches the participant how to recognize severe / life-threatening bleeding and provide treatment while waiting for first responders to arrive. The course will be taught by St. Vincent StatFlight crew members and St. Vincent Evansville Trauma Services staff.
Crane Credit Union and Daviess Community Hospital have supported this training by providing funding and materials to purchase 50 emergency kits for distribution to all the schools in Daviess County. These emergency care kits include tourniquets, trauma shears, wound care materials and gloves – items that are critical when providing care to a patient with life-threatening bleeding. Providing these kits to the schools would not have been possible without the generous support of Crane Credit Union and Daviess Community Hospital.
