Help us save lives thru STOP THE BLEED training

In-Gauge of Polk County, a non-profit organization in Winter Haven, Florida is raising funds to purchase STOP THE BLEED training kits and emergency bleeding control tourniquet kits to be distributed in public venues throughout Polk County, Florida.
Our immediate goal is to purchase 2 STOP THE BLEED training kits, at a cost of $1,200 each and 15 emergency bleeding control tourniquet kits, at a cost of $200 each.
The training kits will be used for training the general public in free STOP THE BLEED training classes. The tourniquet kits will be distributed at public venues, selected schools and other non-profit organizations.
Even in communities well served by EMS services, a person can bleed to death in less than 3 minutes. It is our goal and that of to prevent needless deaths due to traumatic blood loss.
STOP THE BLEED training is applicable and the bleeding control tourniquet kits can be used to control traumatic blood loss in everyday emergencies. Emergencies such as:
  • Automobile accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Home power equipment accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Animal attacks (dog, shark, alligator)
  • Shooting incidents
May is National STOP THE BLEED Month. We would like to begin distributing the bleeding control tourniquet kits no later than May 25th, National STOP THE BLEED Day.
June 17, 2023 is National Train A Teacher Day. In-Gauge of Polk County will be conducting FREE STOP THE BLEED classes for public and private school teachers and administrative personnel. We would like to donate one STOP THE BLEED bleeding control tourniquet kit to each school represented in our STOP THE BLEED training classes.
