We are returning to our regular meeting format this month and so the November General Membership Meeting will be Monday, November 5, 2018, at 7:30.

As usual, the printable version of this newsletter can be downloaded by clicking this link.

● Thank you to Barb Mann, Beth Moses and Dianna Voit of the Erie County Medical Center Trauma Department’s Stop The Bleed program who presented at the October 1 meeting. Members who attended received credit for completing the Bleeding Control Basic Course v. 1.0 (“BCon”) program and a certificate. Stop The Bleed program is intended to give everyone knowledge on how to be part of the first response to mass casualty incidents like the Las Vegas shooting. The lessons are also good for every-day situations that you might encounter, like car accidents or cuts in the home or at work. Overall, the class appeared to be well received and a change from the ordinary meeting format. If members have topics or ideas for other presentations, please let us know.
