On Superintendent's Conference Day teachers were trained by Colby Rowe, MS, NRP, FP-C, CIC of Stony Brook University's Trauma Center Education & Prehospital Outreach Coordinator Division of Trauma to recognize and control life-threatening bleeding. This course was designed so that teachers who may be called upon can bridge the gap from time of injury to arrival of professional first responders. Participants were trained to recognize and treat life-threatening bleeding, through the use of tourniquets and hemostatic gauze to control severe bleeding. The program is overseen by the American College of Surgeons and an educational effort associated with the Department of Homeland Security's national "Stop The Bleed" campaign.
