Did you know May is National STOP THE BLEED® Month? This observance highlights the importance of STOP THE BLEED® training and offers the public training courses in bleeding-control techniques. Minutes and seconds count! Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as five minutes. That is why bleeding control and keeping the blood inside the body is so important!

In 2019 alone, First Aid Safety reached nearly 42,000 participants at Progressive Agriculture Safety Days, while an additional 22,000 participants took part in First on the Scene hands-on activities and demonstrations. These activities aimed at cultivating vital lifesaving skills and techniques.

In addition to teaching about various safety topics, Progressive Agriculture Safety Days also promotes the adoption of healthy lifestyles among participants, including preventing the spread of germs through proper hand-washing practices.

Success Story:

"We were able to partner this year with a nearby trauma center that provided three presenters for Bicycle Safety, Stop the Bleed and general safety for farm children. They have pledged to help with donation of goods, such as bike helmets and safety vests for next year. What a great boost to our Safety Day that this partnership helped create!" -Debbie Tice, Progressive Agriculture Safety Day Coordinator, Lebanon, Pennsylvania
