7:00 - 8:00 – Fayetteville PD will be presenting Stop the Bleed Georgia.

In 2017, the Georgia Trauma Commission along with the Georgia Trauma Foundation, the Georgia Society of the American College of Surgeons, and the Georgia Committee on Trauma collaboratively launched the nationwide "Stop the Bleed” campaign in Georgia.

Stop the Bleed ( is a nationwide initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus that helps train and prepares citizens in the event they are witness to an emergency bleeding situation.

Stop the Bleed is designed to put the knowledge gained by first responders and our military into the hands of the public.

The Georgia General Assembly approved funding to train and equip all Georgia Public Schools with bleeding control kits.

The bleeding control kits are designed to enable bystanders to control life threatening bleeding and provided immediate care to the injured while awaiting the arrival of professional responders.

The bleeding control kits contain a tourniquet, wound packing materials, and gloves to prevent further exposure.

Statewide healthcare and emergency response partners are working together to distribute the training and equipment to each school. Schools are being asked to train a minimum of 10 staff members in order to receive the kits.

Our goal is to provide the life-saving education and equip all of our school classrooms, law enforcement vehicles, and public venues such as airports, stadiums, and churches with bleeding control kits.

Our goal is to build resilience by educating and empowering all citizens to be aware of the simple steps that can be taken to stop or slow life threatening bleeding.

Thank you all for supporting the SMGCO chapter.
