1. Use Pressure to Stop Bleeding

This handy skill can be used in many situations, from your kid falling off his bike to your best friend cutting herself slicing limes for margaritas.

When someone is bleeding, you should apply gentle pressure to slow it down.

Hold a clean cloth over the wound and press down firmly, but not too hard.

Check the wound for bleeding every couple of minutes.

If it doesn’t seem to be slowing down, call 911 or otherwise seek medical help.
