In light of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, a nationwide push for increased public education on bleeding control for victims has emerged.
The University of Virginia Trauma Program, in collaboration with the Life Support Learning Center, is working to deliver to the Charlottesville community and surrounding areas increased availability to Bleeding Control for the Injured, (B-Con) course. This course teaches participants life-threatening bleeding interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet and bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents.
B-Con is designed for non-tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians who may be interested in this basic training. The course was developed in response to efforts by the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services to increase collaboration between law enforcement, the fire service and EMS in responding to active shooter/IED/mass casualty events.
