Victims Don’t Need to Die Waiting for Help to Arrive

Push to get citizens trained to ‘Stop the Bleed’ to save lives of severely injured.

Push to get citizens trained to ‘Stop the Bleed’ to save lives of severely injured

By: Rebecca Petit – ABC Action News-Tampa Bay May 19, 2022

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — On the heels of yet another mass shooting, this time in Buffalo, N.Y., there’s a nationwide push to teach people how to “Stop the Bleed.”

Training courses took place all day Thursday as part of National Stop the Bleed Day.

You don’t have to be an EMT or a medical professional to save someone’s life who is bleeding severely. The “Stop the Bleed” course teaches how to recognize a life-threatening bleed and intervene effectively.

“A lot of craziness is going on in the world and I just like to be prepared for my family and friends,” Aaron Travers said.

After many shootings and crashes witnesses are on the scene before first responders get there. A bystander may be the one who’s most likely to save a bleeding victims their life.

Travers drove from Osceola County to Polk County to take the lifesaving course.

“Everybody should know because the more people that do know the less opportunity for loss of life,” he said.

Robert Dummett hosts these free “Stop the Bleed” training classes. He’s the chief training officer and executive director at In-Gauge of Polk County, a non-profit organization focused on firearms safety.

“An individual can bleed to death in less than three minutes,” Dummett said.

Data shows the average emergency response time for the arrival of EMS personnel to an emergency scene is seven minutes.

Dummett said learning simple techniques can improve a bleeding victims’ chances of survival.

“Packing the wound and direct pressure on the wound and if that’s not sufficient to stop the blood loss, then we want to apply a tourniquet,” Dummett said. “We’re going to tighten this until all blood flow stops. I equate it to turning off a faucet for a garden hose.”

The goal is to get more people trained in the “Stop the Bleed” program, similar to the popularity of CPR training.

“The American college of surgeons created this stop the bleed course in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy years ago,” Lakeland Regional Health trauma surgeon Dr. Andrew Gaugler said. “However, it’s not just these national tragedies that make the news where people have the opportunities to save lives.”

Dr. Gaugler said Lakeland Regional Health has trained 506 people this year using “Stop the Bleed” kits. He said there’s also a federal push to make the kits more widely available.

“If you walk through any public building, an airport, a post office, a shopping mall, you’ll see along the walls there are signs for AED’s which are a life saving device used for cardiac arrest and CPR,” Gaugler said. “I think the perfect location for a bleeding control kit would be in the location of any of those devices.”

Empowering everyday people to provide life-saving care, until emergency personnel arrives.

You can order a your own “Stop the Bleed” kit online. Stop the Bleed Month is held each May. To find more information, including where to find a ‘Stop the Bleed’ course near you, click here.

Winter Haven Gun Show

The February 26th 2022 Winter Haven Gun Show was the worst!

The gun show, put on by USA Gun Shows of Florida and conducted at the Winter Haven Garden Conference Center, February 26th and 27th, was by far the worst. The venue, at least the areas used, was too small. One area used was the hotel’s bar. Yes, the bar.

A vendor actually displayed his goods on the bar, while standing behind it. A bar complete with drink glasses on the shelves. The only thing missing were the liquer bottles. At the other end of the room was the fast food counter and grill. Dining tables were available for those who wished to grab a sandwich and cold drink.

There was totally inadequate vendor space. Two people could hardly walk by one another between tables. The other room being used, which was actually appropriate for the given use, was too small and the AC was not working. Again, there was little aisle space for people to walk.

For the few vendors there were, there was lots of ammunition for sale, but very few guns, new or used.

Regarding parking: That was another issue . . . totally inadequate. Parking was a nightmare. The venue was a hotel with hotel guests and adjacent businesses and property owners were not cooperative.

USA Gun Shows of Florida does not need to return to Winter Haven or Polk County for that matter.
