Stop the Bleed
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
Foxwall EMS, in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Prehospital Care Division, teaches Stop the Bleed classes every year to community organizations and educational facilities.
Heartsaver First Aid
The American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid course teaches students how to manage emergencies in the first few minutes until help can arrive. This class is suitable for babysitters, teachers, camp counselors, Girl and Boy Scouts, workplace first aid providers, and anyone looking to gain confidence in handling emergencies.
Students learn how to respond to common illnesses and injuries, including choking, heart attacks and strokes, diabetic emergencies, broken bones and sprains, heat stroke, frostbite, and more.
