In the last five months, over 700 students and faculty across the Bledsoe County School system have been trained on bleeding control through Erlanger Health System’s Stop The Bleed Program. 
Trauma Services, Life Force and Children’s Safe & Sound have worked together to provide bleeding control education for each school in Bledsoe County.  Students and faculty are taught how to recognize life-threatening bleeding and what steps to take to stop the bleed, including direct pressure, tourniquet application and wound packing.
Every school in Bledsoe County completed Stop the Bleed Training through the Erlanger partnership and each received a multi-use Quick Clot - Bleeding Control Kit, purchased by the Southeast Regional Healthcare Coalition of Tennessee.
  These kits have been placed with each school’s AED to use in the event of life-threatening bleeding.
Erlanger Health System offers Stop the Bleed – Bleeding Control classes free of charge to the public. To learn more or request a class for church, school, community or business groups, go to
