Catawissa American Legion Post 541 recently donated $1,000 to support Southern Columbia Area's initiative to put trauma kits in each school building. The kits are intended for use in the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event such as an active shooter. The kits include gauze, compression bandages, tourniquets and other materials which can stop bleeding. School staff will receive Stop the Bleed training, during which they will learn how to use the trauma kits to save lives. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
