B-Con (Bleeding Control)
This project was started to enhance the training of first responders, law enforcement and the lay public in bleeding control as recommended by the Hartford IV Consensus. Although born out of active shooter incidents, this program is applicable to every day life and any instance where someone may be experiencing serious bleeding. We have created a didactic and practical component to this 2-3 hour program and have rolled out training to US Customs and Border Protection, Rutgers PD, Newark PD and NJMS Medical Students. We are looking to expand the program to include community organizations and public groups. After completing a training program, medical students will be used as instructors for lay public classes. These students will also have the ability to seek out and arrange their own classes within the community (under the supervision of the program leadership) in addition to classes that we arrange.
