The Tucson Police Department has been using the Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK) since February 2014 and is declaring the program a success. All sworn TPD officers have an IFAK in their patrol cars. Inside each IFAK is a tourniquet, QuikClot Combat Gauze, halo chest seal and modular bandages. Since 2014, Tucson police officers have used an item from the kit more than 160 times. http://goo.gl/N9Q9PR

“Just as it has been done with the use of automatic external defibrillators, Coalition members believe the installation of QuikClot Bleeding Control Bags will improve capabilities and can improve survival rates of those injured in such events.”  said Ashton Anderson, Regional Hospital Coordinator for the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program of the Shelby County Health Department. http://goo.gl/UcPosg

This week, Cordova officers learned how to use a belt trauma kit that the department received recently from Blue Forever, a nonprofit that has donated nearly 1,000 lifesaving kits to law enforcement agencies throughout the nation.  “This kind of equipment (QuikClot and a tourniquet) has been available for a long time. There just hasn’t been enough emphasis put on it, especially in smaller departments. I think it needs to be accessible to every officer. If you’re wearing a badge and you’re in a marked vehicle, you need to be able to take care of yourself,” Cordova Fire Chief Dean Harbison said.  http://goo.gl/wNHPSc

The Winfield Police Department kicked off a fundraiser to help pay for new life-saving equipment.  Winfield Police got the idea to buy the QuikClot trauma kits from The Cordova Police Department.  Officer Marcus Carroll says the wearable kits will be worn by Winfield officers at all times.  The kits could save someone's life in a trauma situation.  http://goo.gl/86at4j

…Ronald Atwater explained Cleveland police arrived just a few minutes later, carrying with them their new on-board medical kits, including a packet of QuikClot.  Atwater said police were able to stop the profuse bleeding at the scene in less than a minute, making a big difference until EMS arrived minutes later.  "It's a life saver, it's quicker and it helps them out more with the ambulance, because you never know when it's going to come," said Atwater.  "It stabilized the man a little better.” http://goo.gl/a0nKpW

"Two young men from last night owe their lives to those police officers. That's what the ER docs told us," said Steve Loomis, President of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association. As of Friday, every officer in Cleveland has gone through a one day course put together by Emergency Room trauma surgeons to learn how to use new first aid kits that include Tourniquets and a product called QuikClot. "Keeping them from bleeding out on the scene and that's a direct result of the recent training we've had and the medical kits that are in the cars now," said Loomis. He adds that he knows of at least five people's lives saved this way in the last six months. http://goo.gl/TN3bup
