Stop the Bleed – Ramsey, Benson, Towner Counties

Hofstad Ag Center- LRSC Precision Ag, 1801 College Dr N., Devils Lake

Minutes count! Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes.
That’s why bleeding control—keeping the blood inside the body—is the purpose of STOP THE BLEED® training.

  • 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding
  • 7-10 minutes – Average response time for 1st responders to arrive
  • Average time to bleed out is 3-5 minutes. 

NDSU Extension and the NDSU School of Nursing are partnering to offer Stop the Bleed training for rural residents wanting to learn how to reduce deaths caused by unintentional injury. Nursing faculty will travel to counties throughout the state and work with Extension Agents to provide this 90-minute training.

What You'll Learn

What stops bleeding? In a STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll learn three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: 

  1. How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound
