WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- Spirit EMS is participating in a nationwide campaign called "Stop The Bleed."

Events are held to teach community members how to properly help someone who may be injured. The main goal is to teach people how to stop excessive bleeding during an accident.

Executive Director Kale Fisher said these situations will help prepare people for the unexpected.

"The program helps people prove that if they can stop the bleed, they can give that person that much more time to survive until the emergency service can arrive," Fischer said.

The presentation also included an instructional video and demonstrations on how to respond to an injury.

Spirit EMS is hoping to put on another event in the Fall and offer the program to local schools.
