“Stop the Bleed” is a national campaign to educate people on how to save lives if people are severely bleeding.
In response to the growing number of severe lacerations in the sport of alpine ski racing, the Kelly Brush Foundation has partnered with the Davis family and the national Stop the Bleed movement to:
- provide “Stop the Bleed” training to coaches, athletes, officials and volunteers, and
- distribute life-saving bleeding control kits to alpine ski programs around the country.
In May of 2019, US Ski and Snowboard made a recommendation to all event organizers to amend their medical plans to include Bleeding Control Kits in their start packs. We think this is a good start, but only a start. We want to see all coaches and officials be trained and have Bleeding Control Kits on them at all times while racers are running gates. A laceration can happen at any time.
If you have any questions about the bleeding control kits, the national Stop the Bleed campaign, or training opportunities, please email Zeke Davisson at [email protected]
