Local firefighter Nathan Kunasek has started a non-profit organization to train the community in techniques to stop life threatening bleeding. He feels passionately that all educators can and should be first responders to emergencies. KLCC went to a training at Malabon Elementary School in Eugene’s Bethel District.

KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert reports on regional disaster response efforts and how every citizen can prepare for a serious emergency.
