SurviVermont “Stop the Bleed” Presentation Northwest VT MRC @ St Albans Museum
Sep 26 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
SurviVermont “Stop the Bleed” Presentation Northwest VT MRC @ St Albans Museum | Saint Albans City | Vermont | United States

SurviVermont educational project is a 3-part program design to educate general public and create leaders who are able to respond to mass casualty incidents (MCI) with the skills needed to make a positive impact on the outcome. With the greater frequency of MCIs, some which have occurred in rural areas, it has become a matter of “when”, not “if”.

The 3 parts are the training programs 1)“See Something, Say Something”; 2) “Run, Hide, Fight”; and 3) “Stop the Bleed.”

The MRC will be presenting the Stop the Bleed portion https://www.bleedingcontrol.org.

Open to the public. Come down to city hall to join in on the learning!
