"You are the difference"

About Guardian

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.

Guardian consulting is committed to providing Bleeding Control (BCON) training and equipment to public as well as training in Active Shooter Preparedness. Whether you are a teacher, nurse, law enforcement, or an everyday citizen, Guardian has the training and equipment you need to be the difference between life and death in a crisis situation.
