Stop The Bleed Campaign

The Purpose

To better prepare Bristol, Virginia Public Schools to provide immediate first aid to school children in the event the unthinkable happens.

The Goal

To purchase 60 "Stop the Bleed" kits. The kits will be placed in our 6 Bristol, VA schools. The Fire Department will provide training to school staff on how to utilize the kits.


The kits cost $60 each. Donations can be made directly the Bristol, VA Fire Department at 249 Lee Street. Please make checks payable to the Fire Department (with "Stop the Bleed" notated in the memo.)
