I Want to Buy a Bleeding Control Kit or Cabinet

A goal of the Stop the Bleed Campaign is to have Public Access Bleeding control kits become as common as fire extinguishers and AEDs in public and commercial buildings. A number of companies manufacture or market bleeding control kits for the public. DHS does not approve or endorse any particular commercial product, and we encourage you to do adequate research to determine what equipment best fits your needs.
