South Carroll High School is pleased to offer two very important training opportunities on Thursday, March 5, 2020!

1.       5-6:00 PM           Naloxone Training-Operation Save A Life

·         Preventable drug overdose deaths have been on the rise not only in Carroll County, but also nationwide.  Opioids are the top cause of death from drug overdose.  This course is being taught in efforts to raise awareness and provide a tool for prevention.   

2.       6-7:00 PM           Stop-the-Bleed Training

·         “Injury results from a wide variety of causes, including accidents or intentional harm, and in a wide variety of locations, such as your home or workplace. It is important that as many people as possible survive their injuries if they sustain trauma.  Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma.  The greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured patient, the greater the chances of surviving that injury.  You can help save a life by knowing how to stop bleeding if someone, including yourself, is injured.”

Please join us for one or both sessions!  Click the links below for the class(es) you would like to attend.  In the event you are unable to secure a seat in either class, please contact our school nurse, as we may be able to open up additional classes if needed.
