GTEC Announces Stop the Bleed Seminars for Area Schools
Few things are as terrifying as being confronted with someone who has suffered a traumatic injury and is experiencing major, life-threatening blood loss. However, while many other elements of first aid such as CPR are relatively widely known, many fewer people know what to do when faced with a medical emergency involving severe bleeding. That’s why Golden Triangle Emergency Center has partnered with the Bleeding Control Organization to conduct “Stop the Bleed” seminars for local area schools.
About the “Stop The Bleed” Seminars
Without life-saving intervention a victim of uncontrolled blood loss can lose consciousness and die within five to ten minutes. Yet this dire outcome can be prevented with simple, proven life-saving strategies. GTEC will be conducting training seminars on these skills at each of our three locations on three separate days for the nurses, administrative staff, and faculties of local area schools.
The first seminar will be held at our Beaumont location on Tuesday, August 21st. The second seminar will be held at our Orange facility on Wednesday, August 22nd, and the third and final seminar will be held at our Port Arthur location on Thursday, August 23rd. Each seminar will begin at 5:30pm and last until 8:30pm.

Free Trauma Kits and Trauma Kit Training Will Be Available
Trauma kits are a crucial tool for improving the outcome of medical emergencies involving heavy bleeding. GTEC will be providing training sessions for the nurses, administrative staff, and faculty of schools for how to effectively use these kits. Each school that decides to participate will receive a free trauma kit as a token of our appreciation. School staff who are paramedics, RNs, LVNs, certified athletic trainers, or who have met higher medical qualifications are also eligible to become trainers of the “Stop the Bleed” program and teach it to others.
