In August 2019, every district school nurse participated in a Stop the Bleed training event at Lincoln Financial Field hosted by Tactical Medical Solutions®, Temple Health, the City of Philadelphia's Office of Emergency Management, and the Philadelphia Fire Department. During the hands-on training, nurses learned how to properly apply SOF® Tourniquets and OLAES® Modular Bandages on one another and to several simulators from TacMed Simulation, formerly TraumaFX Solutions.
The School District of Philadelphia will be implementing custom-packed Tramedic® Cabinet Kits throughout their schools and facilities. The Tramedic® Cabinet Kit, designed for use in well-populated areas, contains the necessary medical equipment and instructions for a variety of injuries seen on school grounds, including tourniquets and bandages.
Overall, the training provided school nurses with an understanding of when and how to use the components found inside of their Tramedic® Cabinet Kits.
