On May 7, 2019, at the commencement of National Stop the Bleed Month, Rep. Hastings (FL), Rep. Wenstrup (OH) and Rep. Jackson Lee (TX) introduced new legislation pertaining to Stop the Bleed training and kits. Cosponsors include Rep. Waters (CA) and Rep. Bishop (GA).


HR 2550, the “Prevent Blood Loss with Emergency Equipment Devices Act of 2019” or the “Prevent BLEEDing Act of 2019” would provide grant funding for the purchase or distribution of anti-blood loss supplies for use in medical emergencies in a place where people gather and provide training on the proper use of anti-blood loss supplies to appropriate persons for the purpose of enhancing public safety. 


TCAA is pleased to support the bill along with our Advocacy Partners and members of the Trauma Coalition. Click here for the dear colleague letter requesting co-sponsorship of the bill.
