DENISON, Texas -- A new Texas law will require schools to install a bleeding control station starting in January.

Stop the Bleed is a training program for all faculty and students starting in seventh grade to learn how to use the kit. Texoma Medical Center is providing free training.

"That would allow them in a serious bleeding incident to have the knowledge and the training to help stop the bleeding, and possibly help save the person's life," said Denison Independent School District spokesman Brian Eaves.

Denison schools will be partnering with the hospital and local first responders for the program.
