I know you care about saving lives today.
This is why I urge you to take swift action to ensure we are equipped to respond to life threatening trauma.
The polarizing gun violence debate shouldn't stop you from making real change now.
As your constituent, I urge you to stand with me to Stop The Bleeding and provide life-saving bleeding kits in schools, places of worship and public venues.
On May 7, 2019, Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) and Congressman Brad Wenstrup D.P.M. (R-OH) introduced H.R. 2550, Prevent Bleeding Loss with Emergency Devices (BLEEDing) Act of 2019.
According to the SurgeonsVoice Advocacy Center: This legislation would provide grant funding to states for bleeding control kits and training. The ACS believes, just like CPR training, a civilian familiar with basic bleeding control techniques is better equipped to save a life. The effort to make this training and bleeding control kits available to the public through a Department of Homeland Security grant program will help to drive the goal of reducing or eliminating preventable death from bleeding.
Please support H.R. 2550.
