A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. You can save a life by taking simple actions?immediately after the trauma. Launched in October of 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is intended to train, equip, and empower bystanders to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.?
