|Florida sheriff's office gets high-tech first aid kits
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office now has 15 mobile response kits, which are what Sheriff Rick Staly describes as high-tech first aid kits. To get more news about hemostatic gauze, you can visit rusuntacmed.com official website.
Sheriff Staly said the kits have been given to deputies who patrol the west side of the county, along with the SWAT and Emergency Response Team. He said he strategically placed them on the west side because response times can be slower on that side and this will allow deputies to step into the role of first responders.
"Because it’s so big and the population is so much smaller, response times are obviously slower, unless you happen to be near a fire station when you need the medical help," he said. The kit goes beyond simple first aid and has a touch-screen computer that walks deputies through how to handle emergency situations such as severe bleeding and broken bones.
Sheriff Staly said it will make a big difference especially in rural areas.
"West side has a lot of ranching, farmers, rural areas and more serious things can occur and often the deputies will be there first," he said.
The Foundation completed it’s project of providing an Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK) for every classroom in the Chino Valley School District! These first aid kits are military grade and can be used for every day emergencies, or in the case of severe trauma. We are so proud to be able to help make this happen.|
