The city of Dallas has announced that lifesaving trauma kits soon will be available in most city facilities such as police substations, recreation centers, and at City Hall.
The kits, intended for use by non-experts before medical professionals arrive, are used to stop massive bleeding, treat chest injuries, and provide airway clearance in emergencies such as active shooter situations, the city said in a release.
“We hope to never have to use these kits, but in the case of an active shooter emergency, they make it possible for people in the vicinity of the victims to provide lifesaving treatment before first-responders arrive,” Parkland Hospital Deputy Medical Director Lr. Alexander L. Eastman said in the release.
More information about where the kits will also be added is available here.
