Wolfpack Gunshot Response Team Is Saving Lives By Stopping The Bleeding

Did you know that someone can bleed to death in only five minutes?
In some cases, that is faster than first responders can arrive. 

Which is why is it so important for those who may witness an emergency; to  act. 

The stop the bleeding campaign, started in 2015, aims to train bystanders on how to treat a wound and thereby increase a victim's chance of survival. 

The Wolfpack Gunshot Response Team is working to train people so they will be ready to assist someone who is injured. 

So, far they have assisted one person and ready for more.
