'Stop the Bleed' tourniquet training offered locally to officials

Pennsylvania State Police is partnering with the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation to provide 'Stop the Bleed' tourniquet training to its troopers. 

The course combines lecture with hands-on training and at the end of the course, each member will receive a combat application tourniquet to carry while on duty.

'Stop the Bleed’ is a national campaign, which aims to improve survival from life-threatening blood loss. The goal is to train the public and first responders to stop bleeding using dressings, compression, and tourniquets, according to a news release from Pennsylvania State Police communications office.

Lehigh Valley Health Network is one of the health partners in the area to host training sessions for Pennsylvania State Police. 

St. Luke's provided its first 'Stop the Bleed' training to the Northampton County Sheriff's Department Tuesday.
