By Joe Alton
February 12, 2018
This is part of a series that will help you prepare for such an event. With what you learn in this Webinar and some inexpensive medical supplies, you can be a hero instead of a helpless bystander. We will cover many different types of emergencies, but this first webinar is one of the most important. It will be a discussion of different kinds of bleeding wounds; how bleeding and clotting work; medical supplies you'll need; and the process by which rapid action by good Samaritans can save a life.
