Channelview Independent School District activates Stop the Bleed

Channelview Independent School District activates Stop the Bleed

In response to increased gun violence and mass casualty events in the country, the White House and the Department of Homeland Security created “Stop the Bleed,” a national campaign to help improve survival from life-threatening bleeding.

In recognition of the growing threat of mass casualty events and the need for enhanced training of bystanders to manage life-threatening bleeding in these situations, the district has moved forward with the installation of bleeding control kits in all public buildings in Channelview Independent School District. 

These kits will provide the tools to allow immediate management of life-threatening hemorrhage until EMS providers can arrive.  Channelview ISD is one of the few districts in our area to implement Stop the Bleed.

LyondellBasell provided a monetary donation that funded the purchase of tourniquets, Greater Houston Office Products donated backpacks that will hold of all the necessary materials for bleed kits, and the Channelview Fire Department has donated rubber gloves, medical scissors, bandages, and portable transport units.
