Long Island, NY - March 29, 2018 - Senator John Brooks, in partnership with Northwell Health, invites Long Islanders to a free ‘STOP THE BLEED’ training session Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the North Merrick Library, 1691 Meadowbrook Rd., North Merrick, NY.
Similar to the use of CPR or automatic defibrillators, attendees will learn how to stop severe bleeding - which can make the difference between life and death for an injured person. Uncontrolled bleeding injuries can result from everyday accidents or natural or manmade disasters. Severe bleeding can kill within minutes, before trained responders can arrive. Civilian bystanders, trained on simple steps to take in an emergency situation, can stop life-threatening bleeding and save lives.
An RSVP is required. Please call Senator Brooks District Office 516-882-0630.
