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.
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 STOPTHEBLEED.org
to prevent needless deaths due to traumatic blood loss.
