40% of preventable trauma related deaths are due to uncontrolled bleeding. Major bleeding can kill within 5 minutes if not treated immediately with bleeding control devices. No matter how rapid the arrival of emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on scene and will have the greatest impact on an injured person's survival. Guardian offers training and equipment to turn the every day bystander into an effective life saver in a crisis or disaster situation.
