Scarlett talks with Ryan Burke and Matt Eccles, of Tytek Medical, about what bleed control kits are and why they are essential.
Join the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and Tytek Medical for a special webinar on May 21st in honor of the National Stop The Bleed Day.
Even with the world’s focus on COVID-19, we need to continue to Educate, Equip and Empower the community to save lives through the Stop The Bleed Program. It is possible for the everyday citizen to prevent deaths with minimal training. Approximately 300,000 people are victims of aggravated assault by firearm or knife/cutting in the US annually. Severe bleeding can occur inside the home or from auto accidents on the road. Mortality from hemorrhage is the most common cause of preventable death after a traumatic injury.
Learn how you can be part of the solution and help save lives and of course, Choose Love even in these uncertain times!
