5 reasons why your school should have bleeding control equipment
After the uncertainty faced over the past few months, the thought of returning to school is an exciting time for all children. With the unpredictable readjustment period that these youngsters now face, it is vital to be prepared and equipped for the common injuries that occur throughout the United States schools. Several states in the US are already enacting legislation that takes into account the core principles of the Stop the Bleed program. In 2019 at least 12 states introduced or passed legislation to inform, educate and empower their pupils and teachers to become immediate responders, who can save a life in the event of a bleeding emergency. Not only does this prepare them for an attack, but mentally equips them to deal with catastrophic incidents.
Are you Educated, Equipped and Empowered to Stop the Bleed?
The publicized phrase ‘Stop the Bleed’ has unintentionally become associated with catastrophic incidents or mass-casualty attacks. While the Stop the Bleed, program was a result of the Sandy Hook, Connecticut school shooting in the US, people are faced with life-threatening accidents across the globe resulting from day-to-day activities.
Is Covid19 the only event we need to prepare for?
As the lockdown eases to varying degrees across the world, and we begin to raise our heads above the parapet to peek towards a future of hugging loved ones again and attending events, there remain groups of people who care little about such things. They are consumed with rage, and fear and radicalism, and a passion for revenge, and a burning desire to be noticed.
