Support UEMR to save lives on campus with Stop the Bleed training
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action that intends to educate bystanders in how to act in a life-threatening bleeding emergency before professional help can arrive. A UTD UEMR member instructs a student during a Stop the Bleed workshop.
University Emergency Medical Response (UEMR) teaches Stop the Bleed workshops free of charge to UTD students, faculty and staff. The workshop includes a hands-on skills portion that allows everyone to practice tourniquet application, wound packing and other skills.
Our fundraising goal is $1,500. This money will be used to buy and update equipment used during the hands-on portion of our trainings. Updating our supply of tourniquets, bleeding models, mannequins, gauze and fake blood will allow for a more realistic, educational simulation of life-threatening bleeding.
