This is the image for the news article titled Potter County Trains Our StaffBig thanks to Potter County Sheriff Office and Potter County Fire-Rescue for coming out to train our staff today and present "Stop the Bleed". "Stop the Bleed" is a national awareness campaign whose goal is to encourage citizens to become equipped with the knowledge to help in life-threatening bleeding emergencies and implement life-saving measures while awaiting professional assistance.
The campaign is a partnership between the Amarillo Fire Department, Amarillo Medical Service, Amarillo Police Department, Randall County Fire Department, Potter County Fire Department and Canyon Fire Department.
The agencies installed kits in each of the schools, as well as trained staff members to use the kits.
The program focuses on training for simple, life-saving techniques in the event of any life-threatening bleeding. While the program was initiated in the wake of an active shooter event, the techniques are useful for any situation that may result in significant bleeding.
