Now, North American Rescue is offering a comprehensive kit, with audio, that provides instructions on how to respond to a bleeding emergency before help arrives.
Over the past several years, there has been a growing number of horrific events that have rattled the country and put fear in everyday activities. Seemingly simple events such as sending children to school or attending a concert are attended with hesitation.
When these tragic events strike, bystanders who are in the vicinity often assume the role of first responders until professional help arrives. Additionally, when one’s life is on the line people want to make themselves useful. Now, educational and effective equipment can help stop bleeding, and enable bystanders to actively impact the number of survivors in tragic incidents.
North American Rescue’s Audio Bleeding Control Kits provide effective tools with simple guidance. Those on the scene of an emergency situation can immediately treat injuries with confidence until professionals arrive.
These bleeding control kits include built-in audio hardware that provides step-by-step assistance in easy-to-understand audio prompts combined with the critical equipment and supplies to manage minor, moderate, and severe bleeding safely and effectively. Audio kits include both English and Spanish instructions.
The lightweight, portable, and comprehensive kit can be stored on a shelf, in a drawer, or in the trunk of a car and can also be wall mounted with a cabinet storage solution to hold multiple kits in public buildings. These kits have a future in in schools, airports, concert venues, office buildings, cars, buses and all modes of public transportation.
The audio engineering for these kits were developed in response to a call-to-action by the White House “Stop the Bleed” campaign, which aims “to provide people with the tools to stop life threatening bleeding in the event of an emergency. The campaign is the culmination of work convened by the National Security Council at the White House with partners committed to build awareness, harness technology, and empower Americans from all walks of life to respond when they are needed most. The goals of this program are: (1) The general public will know how to stop life-threatening bleeding. (2) The general public will have access to effective personal bleeding control kits. (3) The general public will have access to effective public access bleeding control kits. (4) Every bleeding control kit will provide “just in time” audio and visual training. (5) Placement of audio bleeding control kits should be next to all Automated External Defibrillators (AEDS).”
