ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. – Central Alabama Community College (CACC) recently hosted a “Stop the Bleed” emergency response course last Friday, July 14, providing crucial training to nursing students, faculty, and campus law enforcement.

The national initiative, launched in 2017 by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), aims to educate the public on controlling bleeding, a leading cause of preventable death in trauma situations.

The course, led by Michael Lovelace, a registered nurse and paramedic, teaches participants to act swiftly and effectively during emergencies, potentially saving lives before professional help arrives.

CACC President Jeff Lynn commended the event, saying, “We’re proud to host the ‘Stop the Bleed’ event at CACC. It aligns perfectly with our commitment to community engagement and continuous learning. This training equips our students and staff with the skills to make a real difference in a crisis.”

Chancellor Jimmy Baker’s broader initiative supports this effort for all community colleges in the state, elevating emergency preparedness in Alabama.

Additionally, attendees were educated on using Narcan, an opioid overdose antidote.

With this training, CACC enhances its ability to respond effectively in emergencies, contributing to a safer campus and community.
