Bleeding Control Station Training Offered April 6

Texas state law requires school districts to place Bleeding Control Stations in schools and train staff members on how to help save the lives of people who may be losing a substantial amount of blood due to traumatic injury. 

In addition, the law requires districts to offer this training to students in seventh grade and above, as well as currently registered parent volunteers.

The Sherman ISD Police Department, in partnership with the Sherman Fire Department, will host this training on Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. -12 p.m. in the cafeteria at Sherman High School, 2907 West Travis Street. The training will cover how to use materials in the Bleeding Control Stations to help prevent death.

Participation is optional and is limited to Sherman ISD students in grades 7-12, as well as currently registered parent volunteers. RSVP is required. Please complete the linked form to RSVP yourself or your student no later than April 2.
