These bleeding control products were developed and approved by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). The ACS Committee on Trauma, and the Hartford Consensus – founders of, along with the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and other recognized emergency response organizations. These STOP THE BLEED® Kits will provide you with the tools and information you need to act quickly to stop bleeding and save a life. The tourniquets and hemostatic dressings in these kits are the primary products and same technology the Department of Defense has tested and approved for use by all U.S. military forces.

These STOP THE BLEED® Kits are affordably priced, enabling you to have one everywhere you would keep a standard first aid kit. Place one in your kitchen, garage, bathroom, laundry room, and in your car. Give kits as gifts so all the people you care about have this life-saving resource too.

Proceeds from the sale of these kits will be reinvested into the initiative so we can continue our mission of providing informational resources and tools to control bleeding and save lives.
