“Stop the Bleed Hemorrhage Control” class at Fire Station #5 (Morton)
With the current events around us from recent hurricanes to the horrific shooting event in Las Vegas, Harris County Emergency Services District No. 48 Fire-EMS (HCESD 48) wants to offer education, and the opportunity to help. They will be hosting a free class to anyone interested in learning this life-saving information. This class is free to the public, and in addition, we will be offering the same kits and equipment we carry for the same price we purchase them for if attendees want a kit to take home. Classes are at 21201 Morton Road (Station #5) at 11 AM and 2 PM. Please RSVP for the class by emailing CPRTraining@hcesd48.org
