May is National STOP THE BLEED Month and in celebration In-Gauge of Polk County, in Winter Haven, Florida will be conducting free 1 1/2 hour Stop The Bleed training seminars.
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action for the control of traumatic blood loss. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Stop the Bleed empowers the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control.
If you are located in Polk or Highlands County and are interested in receiving training in the management of traumatic blood loss, plan to attend one of In-Gauge of Polk County’s free 1 1/2 hour training seminars.
If you would like to schedule a free Stop The Bleed training seminar for your business, church, civic or social organization, contact In-Gauge of Polk County to set up a training session.

A nationally recognized BleedingControl.org certificate of training will be issued upon successful completion.
The ‘Stop the Bleed’ campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff, The White House. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. Advances made by military medicine and research in hemorrhage control during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have informed the work of this initiative which exemplifies translation of knowledge back to the homeland to the benefit of the general public. The Department of the Defense owns the ‘Stop the Bleed’ logo and phrase – trademark pending.
