UT Environmental Health and Safety is offering a free course for the campus community on how to use tourniquets and ‘Stop the Bleed’ trauma kits on Tuesday, May 28. Whether it’s an injury from lawn care or a more serious scenario like an active shooter, participants will learn how to stop arterial bleeding—bleeding from arms and legs—a critical skill that could help save someone’s life before professional help arrives. They also will learn how to apply pressure to wounds on the head and torso.

The 1:30 to 3 p.m. workshop will be held at the UT Visitor’s Center, 2712 Neyland Drive. It is open to UT students, faculty and staff.

To participate, email Suzanne Rimmer at smc@utk.edu.

A UT Medical Center emergency room registered nurse will lead the class.

UT is part of the nationwide effort to empower bystanders to help save lives in bleeding emergencies. There are over 70 automated external defibrillators on campus, all of which have Stop the Bleed kits. Additionally, large assembly buildings including Neyland Stadium, Thompson-Boling Arena, the Student Union and Hodges Library have large trauma kits with multiple tourniquets.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
