This is a national program to teach the lay person hemorrhage control by using direct pressure, wound packing and tourniquet application. It was created in response to mass casualty incidents, however, it can be used for earthquakes, car crashes, etc.

The same basic principles also apply to animals so some of what you learn can also be applied to pets and livestock.
