Main News

SWEETWATER, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The Big Country Regional Advisory Council is working to help “Stop the Bleed.”

The Stop the Bleed campaign is a course that helps bystanders become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

The Sweetwater Fire Department and Ambulance Service is teaching the class to schools, churches, and businesses, each of which will receive an emergency kit to keep in its building.

“Anytime that people can be more self-sufficient and help us before we even get there, there’s no harm in that. There is no downside to that,” says Grant Madden of Sweetwater Fire and Ambulance Service.

Anyone interested in taking the course can contact the Big Country Regional Advisory Council.

The course is free for schools and churches.
