The Department of Public Safety offers a variety of first aid programs. These programs are regularly offered and can be found on Today@Brown and our Facebook page.
Be the Help Until Help Arrives
Be the Help Until Help Arrives is a program designed to educate and empower the public to take action in emergency situations and provide lifesaving care before professional help arrives.
Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast and emergency responders aren't always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately. At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Use simple and effective skills to save lives.
- Communicate with 9-1-1 operators effectively.
- Act to protect the injured from further harm.
- Position the injured.
- Stop life-threatening bleeding.
- Provide emotional support.
Stop the Bleed
Stop the Bleed is a federal initiative to prepare the public to save lives during life-threatening bleeding emergencies. A life-threatening bleed will take someone’s life within minutes unless there is someone to stop it. Learn basic bleeding control techniques and be empowered to save a life until first responders arrive.
