Girl Scout Troop 7171 of South Pasadena, in collaboration with Huntington Hospital, will present a Stop The Bleed training for Marengo Elementary educators and staff.
Stop The Bleed is a national campaign to prepare the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters, as uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death after a trauma.
Girl Scouts Julia Garibyan, Olivia Ko, Jeanelle Tayco and Eva Walker, Marengo 5th graders, chose to promote Stop The Bleed for their Bronze Award project to help save lives and educate others on how to do the same. They attended a training session and became certified in the Stop The Bleed program.
Marengo Elementary educators and staff will receive official Stop The Bleed training at their next teacher staff meeting on May 16th at 3:15pm. Marengo classrooms will be receiving lifesaving kits, including tourniquets, courtesy of Huntington Hospital. This project is timely as May is National Stop the Bleed Month.
