Mobile HUMVEE Outreach
OPERATION STOP THE BLEED - RI
Providing bleeding control, recognition, and response education is a harm reduction intervention that has been demonstrated to saves lives. Operation Stop the Bleed-RI will utilize a surplus HUMVEE to deliver critical training that encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. The program will activate teams of registered and trained Medical Reserve Corps health professional volunteers to provide bleeding control education and rescue skills to citizens and organizations.
Our program will utilize a surplus HUMVEE to deliver training in unique locations, like special events, retail shopping center parking lots, sporting events, or any other high traffic locations. The introduction of this mobile capability will make an incredible impact on our preparedness. Bringing the mobile training vehicle and team to a location will provide every day citizens an opportunity to learn how to save a life with 12 minutes of training. It’s just that simple, 12 minutes to learn a skill that could save your loved one’s life.
