CAMLS and Tampa Downtown Partnership Bring Trauma Training to Downtown Stakeholders, Emergency Personnel
Empowering Downtown Tampa stakeholders with Bleeding Control techniques
Bleeding Control Program, brought to you by Tampa Downtown Partnership Security Network and The University of South Florida’s Center for Advanced Medical Learning a Simulation (CAMLS).
WHERE / WHEN
USF Health CAMLS
124 S. Franklin St.
Tampa, FL 33602
Tuesday, May 9
9am – 10:30am
The University of South Florida’s Center for Advanced Medical Learning a Simulation (CAMLS) and Tampa Downtown Partnership invite you to join Dr. Luis Llerena for an initial discussion regarding a Bleeding Control Program that will be implemented in Downtown Tampa. Dr. Llerena will also provide updates from a recent Florida Committee on Trauma Training session that occurred in Orlando.
Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.
It is the mission and vision of Tampa Downtown Partnership and CAMLS to empower Downtown Tampa stakeholders with the appropriate training and for the community to successfully deploy Bleeding Control Packs in an emergency.
This meeting will detail how the program works. Actual training will be scheduled on another day in the near future.
