Knowing how to Stop the Bleed is a life saving skill just like CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver.
This advanced form of first aid to stop catastrophic bleeding using tourniquets and wound
packing can mean the difference between life and death while waiting for emergency services

Just in time for National Stop the Bleed Day on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019, the Fairchild Medical Center Foundation is pleased to announce that last week the Foundation delivered 28 Stop the Bleed Wall-Mounted Bleeding Control Stations (valued at $800 each) to the elementary and high schools in the Fairchild Medical Center service area.
Each station includes 1 Portable Bleeding Control Bag® which includes 8 bleeding
control kits and each kit includes:
• Instructional booklet on bleeding control
• C-A-TTM tourniquet
• QuikClot® Bleeding Control DressingTM
• Mini SharpieTM Marker
• 1 pair of protective gloves
• Compression bandage
• Instructional Poster of step-by-step bleeding control techniques to hang on the wall
That’s a total of 144 tourniquet kits in local schools and 144 opportunities to stop catastrophic bleeding and save a life.
Every year, the FMC Foundation identifies a specific need in the hospital and through the fundraising efforts of their annual golf tournament, raises money to meet that need. For the 2018 tournament, Stop the Bleed was selected by the Foundation’s Board of Directors due to the impact it could have on our hospital and clinics but also because of the large community benefit the program provides.
While the Foundation’s 2018 golf tournament was cancelled last September due to the Delta Fire, the Foundation remained committed to the Stop the Bleed program and donated $20,000 towards the purchase of the Stop the Bleed Wall-Mounted Bleeding Control Stations. Additional financial support came from the following generous donors: Advantage Paving & Excavating, AWM Construction, AWM Realty, Doug & Cheryl Langford, Family Smiles, Jim Kutzer Insurance Agency, Keenan & Associates, Northern Credit Service, Premier Oil Change, Scott Valley Disposal, Jim Hendricks and Shasta Valley Rotary.
Fairchild Medical Center provides free health information to our community through a program called Advice Nurse.
Through Advice Nurse you may receive information about an illness or health care concern. We hope you find this service helpful.
