Bleed control cabinets

In the event of a trauma injury, the university has more than 30 bleed control kits throughout. These kits, found in clearly marked cabinets, contain the essentials needed to limit blood loss and stabilize an injured person.

All kits include:

  • compressed gauze
  • emergency bandages
  • emergency blanket
  • hemostatic gauze
  • medical gloves
  • permanent marker
  • sheers
  • tourniquet
  • visual guide

In an emergency, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the supplies as needed. When a bleed control cabinet is opened, an alarm will go off alerting Campus Security that a person requires immediate help.

Bleed control cabinet locations can be found on the online campus maps.
