Stop the Bleed Training Offered Representatives of the Kansas State University Police Department will be offering Stop the Bleed training on Friday June 1, 2018 to teach students, faculty, and staff specific lifesaving bleeding control skills. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Stop the Bleed training teaches you proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use your hands, dressings, and tourniquets to save someone’s life or your own. The Stop the Bleed training session (EHS101) will be offered in the common area of Edwards Hall on Friday June 1, 2018 from 3 to 5 pm. To register for any of these sessions, you can either sign up through HRIS self-service or send an email to learning-develop-hr@k-state.edu. When sending an email, please include your name, employee ID, and the course title specifying the date.

A tornado WATCH means BE PREPARED. A tornado WARNING means TAKE ACTION. If there is a tornado watch pay extra close attention to the weather and be ready to act, because tornadoes are possible. If there is a tornado warning, find shelter immediately, and move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building, because a tornado is occurring or will shortly. Avoid windows and cover your head to protect yourself from flying debris. Acting early helps to save lives! http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/tornado/ww.shtml

We will have officers at the K-State Student Union today helping with the No More Campaign, please stop by and say hi.
