On Friday, June 28th, Special Operations Combat Medics (SOCM) rotating at Cooper accompanied by our own Cooper Military training team traveled to Sea Girt to train over 150 New Jersey State Police Cadets in “Stop The Bleed”. “Stop The Bleed” training is part of a national initiative aimed at putting knowledge gained by first responders and the military into the hands of the public to help save lives during times of disaster. It was a privilege to have been invited to provide this training to our colleagues in the NJSP.
