The Oregon Area Fire/EMS District will be hosting two opportunities for citizens to learn how to "Stop the Bleed" in October. This free program gives you the chance to learn techniques to stop bleeding which can save lives. With mass casualty incidents occurring all over the country, and with hunting season starting, this knowledge may become useful when you least expect it.
Each free class will last approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The first chance to learn will be on October 17th and then again on October 30th. You can join fire department staff in the fire station both nights, starting at 6:30 PM. No pre-registration is required.
