Coinciding with the start of the new year, Texas has implemented a new first aid law. House Bill 496, which went into effect on January 1st, 2020, requires all public schools and open-enrollment charter schools in the state of Texas to have bleeding control kits available on campus. These first aid kits are being referred to as ‘Stop the Bleed’ kits. They are required to be placed in easily accessible areas and are to be included in a school’s emergency preparedness plans.
