School News

Pleasant Hills Middle School Resource Officer Ron Porupsky leads a weekly interest group for middle school students on Wednesdays after school to provide them the opportunity to learn more about first responders and gain valuable life skills.

PHMS1 Stop the bleed
PHMS students receive training from first responders

On Wednesday, March 7, 2018 Officer Porupsky organized “Stop the Bleed” training with the Baldwin EMS and Pleasant Hill Police Department. Approximately 50 students in grades 6, 7, and 8 attended the presentation.

The students were split into small groups led by members of the Baldwin EMS. Students were taught the correct procedures to administer to control bleeding, including how to use their hands, gauze, bandages, and tourniquets. Students took turns packing wounds and applying tourniquets to arms and legs under the supervision of first responders.

According to Officer Porupsky, “This training is a very important skill to have. Although I hope the students never have to use it, if the situation ever arises, they will have the skills to save a life.”

Principal Dan Como views this important training as providing “one more step we take to help prepare our kids and empower them to act quickly and help others in a time of need.”
