Planning Stop the Bleed Event for State Employees – You can help

The MTC Injury Prevention Stop the Bleed Group is planning a Stop the Bleed event for the Michigan Department of Technology, Management, and Budget (DTMB) this Summer.

As of May, many DTMB facilities have installed two trauma kits (includes a CAT and a H-bandage) with their AEDs; we want the state employees to feel empowered to use the trauma kits if an emergency were to occur. Many MTC IP members have responded to our doodle poll, but we did want to provide an opportunity for all of our member organizations to contribute to this event. Here is a link to a doodle poll that we are using to plan a date for the event:

We plan on finding a day to hold three Stop the Bleed Sessions in the Library of Michigan Auditorium, which holds approximately 220 individuals; all together, we hope to educate 660 state employees during the one day blitz! In order to accomplish such a feat, we must recruit between 23-28 instructors for each of our Stop the Bleed sessions.

After we find a date, we will decide upon the times to hold the three courses during the day. In the weeks to come, we will have a sign-up genius for people to sign-up for different roles during our courses.

Please let us know if we can answer any other questions about the upcoming event.
