As part of the District's efforts to be prepared in case of a variety of emergencies, staff at Skyview Middle School recently took a "Stop the Bleed" class, which teaches non-medical personnel how to stop uncontrolled bleeding and potentially save a life. Among other things, staff learned how to apply tourniquets and pack a wound.

The training was delivered by Evergreen Hospital ER personnel. Jennifer Celms, Skyview's nurse who also works in the hospital's ER, invited her hospital colleagues to teach the class.
