Germantown teachers learn to ‘Stop the Bleed’

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (CBS 58) – When there’s an emergency on a school campus, knowing what to do can save lives.

On Wednesday, the Germantown Fire Department brought its ‘Stop the Bleed’ training program to teachers.

Homeland Security launched Stop the Bleed after the Sandy Hook school shooting. It provides teachers and other bystanders with the equipment and training necessary to help in an emergency before first responders arrive.

“They’re an extension of the fire department, essentially. They are the first responders. It comes to teachers, it comes to citizens on the street,” says firefighter Jake Dettmering.

The program is funded through a $10,000 grant from the Southeast Regional Trauma Advisory Council.
