In a medical emergency with uncontrolled bleeding, seconds matter. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call to action. Queen Creek Fire & Medical Department (QCFMD) is offering free Stop the Bleed trainings to increase the number of bystanders prepared to help in an emergency.
“The more people we can train with basic life-saving skills, the healthier our community will be,” stated QCFMD’s Chief Vance Gray. “As your first responders, we know the value of having trained bystanders, which is why we are investing in these free monthly trainings. I encourage our residents help improve the survivability of our community by participating in the Stop the Bleed and CPR trainings.”
The free classes will be held at the Law Enforcement and Community Chambers Building, 20727 E. Civic Parkway. Registration is required – visit QueenCreek.org/StoptheBleed to reserve your spot for the Sept. 28 training, space is limited.
QCFMD also offers free monthly CPR classes. The Sept. 28 class is currently full, but a limited number of seats are available for the Oct. 12 training. Visit QueenCreek.org/CPR to register.
