Stop The Bleed Classes

Over 1 million people have learned to STOP THE BLEED®. You can too!
 

The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® program has trained over 1 million people worldwide how to stop bleeding in a severely injured person.
 

Our Goal
 

While more than 1 million people have now been trained to STOP THE BLEED®, that’s just a start. Our goal is to train 200 million. Why? Because the purpose of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding.
 

This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding.
 

Take Our STOP THE BLEED Course
 

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 him or her. Take the course and become empowered to make a life-or-death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs. 
 

To request training information or to sign up, follow this link. You will be placed on a list and notified by phone or e-mail when a sufficient number of students are obtained.

AED's: Automatic Electronic Defibrillators


Thanks to the generous donations of Tellico Village residents, the TVVFD has purchased and installed AEDs in the TVPOA Offices, Wellness Center, Community Library, Chota Recreation Center, Tanasi and Toqua Golf clubhouses, and the Yacht Club. Additionally, TVVFD maintains AEDs in each fire department vehicle and in all of our First Responder’s personal vehicles. Having AEDs strategically placed throughout the Village significantly increases availability and access by those who are trained to perform CPR and use an AED.

The sign will be made and installed, or the Kahite resident notified, as soon as the sign is ready.
