Nicolette Ngov – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – During sixth and seventh period on Aug. 29-30, Carol Lidey’s Health Opportunities through Physical Education (HOPE) classes will learn emergency preparedness techniques from a program called Stop the Bleed.
According to their website, “BleedingControl.org is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus and contains diagrams, news, videos, and other resources contributed by a variety of other private and nonprofit partners to help prepare you in the event you are witness to one of these unspeakable events.”
LRHS HOPE students will learn to properly stop any life-threatening bleeds that may occur in emergency situations and how to properly handle these events.
HOSA member junior Cameron Willis said, “I am excited for the presentation and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Lidey believes this course is important to make students feel confident in emergency situations. “It is important to teach the students practical skills and ensure that they will be prepared in case of a traumatic situation.”
