Bleeding Control (B-CON)

Cascade is helping build more resilient communities!

Learn Bleeding Control Skills

Did you know that after a traumatic injury, hemorrhage is responsible for over 35% of deaths and over 40% of deaths within the first 24 hours- second only to the rates of death due to severe central nervous system injury? Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable trauma death. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 5 trauma deaths are preventable through the use of bleeding control techniques.

To combat this epidemic, the 'Stop the Bleed' campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup. Convened by The White House National Security Council Staff, the purpose of the campaign is to increase national resilience by preparing the public to save lives through awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding follwing events such as tornados, earthquakes, injuries from a table saw, or from an active shooter/terrorist event.

Active Shooter Training

No active shooter training is complete without the BCON component. Cascade’s own Jim Manson was Assistant Chief of Education for the Denver Health Paramedic Division for both the Aurora and Centennial Colorado active shooter events. He knows first hand that you or the person next to you is the first responder when events go bad. Cascade can add our BCON course to your Active Shooter training or help you find a qualified organization to provide your Active Shooter training.

If you or your organization would like to discuss BCON training, contact Cascade Training Center at the number above to get more information.

Stop the Bleed Campaign

October 6, 2015 - The White House announces the National Stop the Bleed Campaign. In a effort to improve community resilency by putting knowlege gained from first responders and our military in the hands of the public.

"Our national preparedness is the shared responsibility of all levels of government, the private and non-profit sectors, and individual citizens. The goal of this initiative is to build national resilience by empowering the general public to be aware of the simple steps that can be taken to stop or slow life threatening bleeding, and to promote the general public’s access to Bleeding Control Kits in public spaces, while they travel, and in the home." - Stop the Bleed Fact Sheet
