The Orleans Citizens Forum in partnership with the Orleans Fire and Rescue Department conducted a highly successful Stop the Bleed training program this past spring. Over 170 people received hands-on training in 7 classes through June. All 7 classes were filled with waiting lists for some of the sessions. Orleans Fire Chief Tony Pike, Administrative Assistant Melissa Clayton and Firefighters Tom Pellegrino, Dana Medeiros, Aaron Burns and Leslie Vasconcellos conducted the hands-on training along with Nauset Beach EMT’s Hank Rex, Kyle DeFrancesco and Marjorie DeBrosky. Orleans Natural Resources director Nate Sears participated in each class also. The Orleans Police Department and the Orleans Senior Center provided the use of their facilities as training sites.
As a result of the program’s success, we are partnering for 3 more sessions this fall on Tuesdays September 17, October 15 and November 18. Each class will be held at the Orleans Police Department from 3:30 – 5:30 PM. Registration information is located at the bottom of this page.
