Stop the Bleed is the national awareness campaign and call to action aimed at decreasing preventable deaths. It was developed by the American College of Surgeons and other collaborators to enhance survival from intentional mass casualty and active shooter events.
CSMS has purchased a Stop the Bleed kit that contain tourniquets, QuikClot® Bleeding Control Dressing™, protective gloves, and compression bandages for our office. Matthew Katz, EVP/CEO noted “We see this as an important tool to have in every office. Bleeding control kits and training are important to treat victims not only of unspeakable tragedies but from everyday accidents.” This Stop the Bleed training session is sponsored by the CT Chapter of the American College of Surgeons and the Disaster Preparedness Committee of CSMS and is open to all CSMS members, staff, and fellow businesses in the building and North Haven community.
