Course Information: The Hartford Consensus, chaired by Lenworth M. Jacobs Jr., MD, convened in 2013 as a result of the Sandy Hook mass casualty incident in Newton, CT. The Hartford Consensus, which includes government and civilian organizations, established protocol to improve survivability rates after mass casualty events.

Since 2013, the program has evolved into a nationwide initiative that encourages bleeding control training for everyone–even if you don’t have a medical background, you can help save someone from bleeding to death!

Massive bleeding from any cause can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets.

To schedule a class for a group, contact or call our offices at (602) 933-4060.
