Stop The Bleed

The University of Texas at Tyler

Did you know that there is a Public Access Bleeding Control Kit in every classroom and lab on campus, as well as specific public spaces, such as the Library, HPC Gym and the University Center? 

Public Access Bleeding Control Kit

Would you know how to use the contents during a bleeding emergency? 

Kit Contents


The purpose of the Stop The Bleed campaign is to better prepare the public to save lives if others nearby are severely bleeding. This is being done by raising awareness and teaching individuals three quick actions to control serious bleeding. 

Through our Stop The Bleed course, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively. The person next to a bleeding victim may be the one who’s most likely to save their life.

Take the class and become empowered to make a life-or-death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs. Stop The Bleed. Save a Life!
