What is a BleedSafe Community and why should my community be designated a BleedSafe Community?

Trauma is a leading cause of death. The prevalence of Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) continues to dramatically increase.  The BleedSafe Community program seeks to increase survival from both by assisting in the development of a community based, integrated approach to managing trauma. The program allows communities to evaluate their current state of readiness, and establish goals to help create a tangibly safer community in response to trauma. By earning “pressure points” toward the designation, your team can strengthen your community in places that people live, work, and play. “Pressure Point” criteria are based on the programs four foundational pillars: Prevention, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery from trauma. Although primarily focused on developing more ready and resilient communities from trauma related to Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response, the concepts and principals of the program translate to all types of trauma.
