Another Texas Shooting: A nightmare and a reality

Oct 29, 2019

The US has once again been faced with another heart-wrenching deliberate attack.

Unfortunately, it’s no real shock that yet another shooting has taken place, as the statistics on gun violence increase year-on-year.

Last weekend a man opened fire at a university party in Greenville Texas, where 750 students attended to celebrate Halloween. 

On Saturday night the gunman killed two and injured twelve people, with eight of these suffering gunshot wounds.

Following the attack, chaos exacerbated the situation as everyone, including the shooter, ran for their lives. The authorities arrested a 22-year old male on Monday morning, less than 48 hours after the shooting.

It’s a terrifying realization that deliberate mass attacks across America are happening on a regular basis. In fact, it’s been reported by some media organizations that there have been more mass shootings than days in this year!

So, how can we prepare?

With the number of fatal attacks on the rise we believe (along public key public health officials) that it’s vital for everyone to bring emergency preparedness to the forefront of their thinking. A rapid, safe and successful response requires education, equipment and empowerment.

Mass shootings can occur anywhere at any time, for instance in schools, a place where children should feel safe and secure. Although, this year alone we have been confronted with numerous school shootings across the US.

It’s becoming paramount that bleed control solutions should be available at the public’s disposal. They can truly make the difference between life and death. If an individual is catastrophically bleeding the Emergency Services may not arrive in time, within this short period a bleed control kit could stop an trauma victim from bleeding to death.
