Years ago, the term first responder only applied to law enforcement
officers, fire rescue personnel, and emergency medical professionals.
Recent events have shown us that the term first responder also includes
bystanders, involved participants, and concerned citizens who happen
to be present. Here at TacMed™ Solutions, we understand that being an
untrained provider doesn't diminish the first responder's willingness
to help those in need. TacMed™ brings proven life-saving medical gear
and instructions together so that anyone can become a first responder.
Tactical Medical Solutions® supports the "Stop the Bleed" national campaign aimed at empowering
bystanders and civilians to act quickly in an emergency situation. Stop the Bleed focuses on the
following treatments: 1) the application of steady pressure to a bleeding site, and 2) the application
of a tourniquet should the bleeding continue after compression. For more information on the Stop the
Bleed campaign, visit their website here: http://www.dhs.gov/stopthebleed.
Tactical Medical Solutions® further supports the Stop the Bleed initiative by providing a complete
solution to getting the necessary gear into the public's hands with the TacMed™ Emergency Trauma
Station. The Emergency Trauma Station is a red TRAUMA bag in a wall-mounted cabinet containing 7
throw kits. These throw kits include OLAES® Modular Bandages, which can be used as pressure dressings,
and SOF® Tactical Tourniquet Wides, which are used to control severe bleeding. The cabinet is alarmed,
low-profile, and can be hard-wired in to a building's existing alarm system so that others can be
notified in the event of an emergency. It is ideally suited for high-traffic areas and readily
available for public access. Learn more about the Emergency Trauma Station.
