Youth Fire Prevention and Intervention Program A family-oriented program targeting youth 8 - 17 who exhibit behaviors associated with the misuse of fire (playing with matches or lighters, using accelerants, firesetting, fireworks, bottle bombs, arson, etc.). It is also for youth who have observed others playing with fire or who are at risk for experimentation. Firefighters, arson police, social workers, burn survivors, and medical personnel teach the medical, social, legal, and financial consequences associated with the misuse of fire. Youth/families receive interactive education and techniques to promote a safe home environment and prevent injuries. Straight Talk is provided to families free of charge and has been nationally recognized and scientifically proven as an exemplary prevention and intervention program.
Stop The Bleed
"Stop the Bleed is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives. Uncontrolled bleeding injuries can result from natural and manmade disasters and from everyday accidents. If this bleeding is severe, it can kill within minutes, potentially before trained responders can arrive. Providing bystanders with basic tools and information on the simple steps they can take in an emergency situation to stop life threatening bleeding can save lives. Research has shown that bystanders, with little or no medical training, can become heroic lifesavers. Similar to the use of CPR or automatic defibrillators, improving public awareness about how to stop severe bleeding and expanding personal and public access to Bleeding Control Kits can be the difference between life and death for an injured person." Stop the Bleed is an initiative endorsed by the American College of Surgeons, The Committee on Trauma, Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and many other national organizations.
