WHS offers a number of community education courses. Below you will find the list of current classes and the next available registration dates.

Stop the Bleed Course

Members of the community need basic training in bleeding control principles so they are able to provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders are able to take over care of an injured person. Due to many situations (manmade or natural mass casualty events), there may be a delay between the time of injury and the time a first responder is on the scene. The resulting injuries from these events generally present with severe bleeding. Without the help from community members in these circumstances, preventable deaths will occur.

All instructors have completed a Bleeding Control Instructor Training.

The purpose of this program is to educate the participants in the principles to stop uncontrolled bleeding.  Following the Stop the Bleed course, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify ABC’s of bleeding.
  • Identify “life-threatening” bleeding.
  • Apply tourniquet compression.
  • Demonstrate wound packing with direct pressure compression.
