On March 31, 2018, New Covenant Fellowship is participating in National Stop the Bleed Day by hosting a training session that will cover responses for two major medical emergencies. The first covers the steps to keep a person with a traumatic bleeding wound alive until appropriate medical care is available. It is presented by instructors from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Health Affairs. The second session will cover heart stoppage events, and will teach participants how to use CPR and how to use an Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED). The CPR/AED course is chartered by the American Heart Association, and will result in formal CPR/AED certification for all participants who complete the course. Lunch will be provided.
