Stop The Bleed Program

Congratulations to the pioneers from the ITS Department who completed the first on campus Stop the Bleed Training offered by Student Health on April 30, 2018.

They include Larry Deni, chief information officer; Michele Folsom, director of administrative computing; Tracy Wass, senior programmer analyst/DBA;  Pamela Dart,  programmer analyst; Lauren Barry, programmer analyst; Greg Rusch, computer support technician and Tom Prince, computer support specialist.

Stop the Bleed is a national program created after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to train public bystanders to respond to bleeding emergencies and to take actions to control bleeding until emergency response (EMS) personnel arrive to take over care of the victim (s).

The ITS team learned to recognize what life threatening bleeding looks like and the actions they should take to respond to a bleeding victim. They demonstrated competency in applying three bleeding control strategies.

Thank you to ITS for taking time to learn these very important life-saving skills.

Student Health offers Stop the Bleed training to campus departments or groups. Contact Patricia Creahan, to discuss training opportunities.

College-Wide Shredding

Canisius will hold a campus-wide shredding event for all college-related materials. The Facilities Management Department will secure a central shredding location. Please note that personal material will not be accepted for shredding.

All material to be shredded must be boxed.  Boxes can be obtained by placing an online work order in the Facilities Management online work order system located in the MyCanisius Portal, under My Applications, Facilities Work Order.

Once your shredding is boxed, place a new work order to have these boxes picked up and moved to the central shredding location. Work orders for pick up can be placed between May 21, 2018 through May 31, 2018. Please be patient as the Facilities Management Department Staff will complete work orders according to staff availability and time schedules.

Please do not call the Facilities Management Department to request boxes or pick up of boxes. You will be referred to the work order system to place your requests.

Thank you for your cooperation.
