Why bleeding control equipment is so important within places of high footfall.

Jan 19, 2021

Carrying on from the devastating Manchester Arena attacks, another inquiry has been made by the family of a young girl, whose life could’ve been saved, had the proper bleeding control equipment have been available within the venue. Information from the inquiry suggests that there were no tourniquets applied to the young girls leg wounds, by neither the paramedics on the scene or once she arrived at the hospital. In light of this, we want to share with you the importance of having bleeding control equipment available in places of high footfall, such as large venues and stadiums across the globe.

They are specifically designed to provide quick access to the bleeding control kits; should an incident occur the roll of 8 kits hang to allow individual kits torn off to allow them to be distributed as required quickly.

Why Do We Need This Equipment?
