National Stop the Bleed Day is a call to action to save lives by preventing death from hemorrhage. This year, we ask that you observe National Stop the Bleed Day by urging your Representative in Congress to Co-Sponsor the Prevent Bleeding Loss with Emergency Devices (BLEEDing) Act (HR 2550). Introduced by Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) and Congressman Brad Wenstrup, DPM (R-OH), this initiative would provide grant funding to states for bleeding control kits and training. The American College of Surgeons has helped shape this legislation.

Contacting your Representative and lending your voice to this issue can be accomplished in three easy steps: 

It's as simple as that! We sincerely thank you for your participation in this important and lifesaving initiative.
