How to prepare for a mass casualty attack
The US makes up less than 5% of the world's population but is home to 31% of the world's mass shooters. Last year the United States were faced with a total number of 418 mass shootings, making it the worst year on record according to Gun Violence Archive.
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. Many companies are starting to understand the importance of providing preparedness equipment and mass casualty training to prevent the loss of life and prioritize their duty to care.
As highlighted in our previous blog, schools are also beginning to implement the necessary training to educate, equip and empower students and staff members on how to mentally and physically deal with a mass casualty attack. However, with the continuous rise in mass shootings taking place on the streets of America, it’s also important members of the public and employees working within the community feel prepared.
How can we prepare our nation for a catastrophic attack?
Here at TyTek medical we manufacture compact, pre-hospital emergency medical supplies for trauma care. Our proven emergency medical products were engineered for military medics to provide emergency first aid, but are now available to help you with military style wounds in civilian environments.
Our Bleeding Control Stations have proven extremely popular as they are used world wide in public spaces such as, transport hubs and corporate buildings. 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. It’s also mandatory in schools across a number of States to have this equipment on campus.
Following the success of the Bleeding Control stations we listened to our customers and understood the need for a portable Bleeding Control kit. Our essential, compact pouch can be worn on a belt or kept in a vehicle, providing full mobility when it is needed most - in the event of a catastrophic bleed. We’re literally on your side!
Each pouch contains an instruction card to help you attend to a trauma victim,, alongside the necessary emergency supplies - two pairs of Nitrile Medical Gloves, one compression bandage, two Z-Fold Gauze, one pair of Piranha Trauma Shears, one Windlass Tourniquet and one Black Permanent Marker.
Every second of the Platinum Ten minutes counts (highlighted in recent medical research as the key time in which you can save lives) and the contents of this pouch will #educate #equip and #empower you to save lives.
