Pocket size trauma kits are life savers

This article is in today's paper: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/...rs-for-police/

It appears that they have already saved a few LEO lives. Might be worth bringing up to your Department to add to the budget. Or, raise some funds and buy 'em anyway. Hope that you never have to use it though.

Stay safe,

Ray

Always a good idea to be prepared. I know we all carry too much stuff around as it is, but medical gear is something that should always be at hand.

I just found the company:

The trauma pack looks like it fits in a standard uniform shirt packet.

All of our officers are at minimum EMR certified. My truck has a full compliment of medical gear including oxygen, splints, C-collars, trauma dressings, and an AED. The one thing I am admittedly inadequate on is medical stuff I carry on my person. I am definitely going to look into some of these pocket sized kits.
