Save a Life, Stop the Bleed 

Uncontrolled bleeding is the #1 cause of preventable death from trauma.

UC Davis Fire will train you to use on-hand resources to control a patient’s bleeding, until first responders arrive. All students who attend UCDFD's Heartsaver CPR class will receive Stop the Bleed certification as part of that training.
