STOP THE BLEED: ACTIVE SHOOTER INCIDENT RESPONSE

STOP THE BLEED: ACTIVE SHOOTER INCIDENT RESPONSE

THE CHALLENGE:

Active shooter incidents are often unpredictable, evolve quickly and are often over within 10 to 15 minutes. In the midst of the chaos, prior to the arrival of law enforcement and emergency medical personnel, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident.


THE SOLUTION:

In support of the government mandated Stop the Bleed campaign, ADS addressed the need for an Active Shooter Incident Response Kit that allows bystanders and civilians without prior medical training to save the life of a victim at a moment’s notice.

Through a joint partnership, ADS was able to integrate Phokus Research Group’s trauma kit and Cardiac Science’s Powerheart G5’s RescueCoach™AED into a user-friendly first responder kit that provided the same quality of care as an EMT or a Paramedic.

During a tense rescue, both experienced and first-time rescuers can use the automated external defibrillator (AED).

Stop the Bleed kits provide critical equipment that allows all bystanders to stop significant blood loss. Each kit includes life-saving tools that are easy to use and conveniently packaged in a durable, compact pouch which contains everything from Nitrile gloves and Quickclot Bleeding Control Gauze, to a tourniquet, Frog Tape and a rescue blanket in the medium and large kits.

ACTIVE SHOOTER INCIDENT RESPONSE KIT:

  • Reliable
  • Easy to use
  • Grab the device off the wall, and save a life
  • No medical experience required

"When there’s a traumatic situation, bystanders will be the first responders. Our goal is to have the tools on site so [the bystander] can be an effective first responder."
