STOP THE BLEED® - EvergreenHealth Medical Center

With 3 quick actions, you can be trained to save a life. The number 1 cause of preventable death after injury is bleeding. That’s why an instructor from the American College of Surgeons wants to train you how to STOP THE BLEED®. *RESERVED FOR ACTIVITY LEADERS UNTIL 02/01/2023. LEADER PERMISSION REQUIRED - PLEASE READ ALL NOTES BELOW.*

  • Casual
  • Pace: 2 1/2 hours duration with 25-minute interactive course pre-req

Meet at 6:00pm at EvergreenHealth Medical Center at 12040 NE 128th Street - Kirkland, WA. The training will be held on the 1st Floor in the Surgery & Physician's Pavillion in the NE part of the complex. Please allow sufficient time for parking and transit to the conference room. Parking will not be validated but plenty of free after-hours parking. Live session is up to 2 1/2 hours and dinner will not be provided, so please plan accordingly.

Please bring e-mail with Interactive Course quiz results to live session.

This seminar is initially intended for activity leaders within The Mountaineers and will not be open to non-members. Others wishing to take a similar seminar can consult the official STOP THE BLEED® course listing. If an activity leader wishes to register and the respective leader badge is not listed, please e-mail leader at with profile link.

This is a repeat training due to the high demand, success and feedback of the first session in Oct-2023. However, there was also high churn on the roster which prevented many interested leaders on the waitlist from being able to attend. As such, marking as Leader Permission required. When completing the Leader Permission form, please answer the following questions:

1. Are you committed to attending a 2 1/2 hour evening training on a weekday in Kirkland, WA...given that it will be wintertime and during rush-hour traffic? If this sounds great now, but won't sound good come mid-Feb, please do not request to join this seminar.

2. Will you complete the 25 min Interactive Course *BEFORE* attending the live session, and bring your e-mail with quiz results to the live session?

Those who register without Leader Permission will be permanently cancelled off the roster.

The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® program has prepared over 2.6 million people worldwide on how to stop bleeding in a severely injured person.

In this STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll learn three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. These three techniques will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life.

This course has two parts:

  • 25-minute interactive course intended to be completed first.

    You will receive an e-mail with your quiz results to bring to the Skills-Only Course.

  • 2 1/2 hour live Skills-Only seminar: A formal presentation followed by hands-on practice of applying direct pressure, packing a wound, and using a tourniquet to stop bleeding. Small group instructors will be available to check your movements as you practice three different bleeding control actions.
