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.
Goal of STOP THE BLEED®
The purpose of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding.
TacMed's Support of STOP THE BLEED®
TacMed 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:
- The application of steady pressure to a bleeding site
- The application of a tourniquet should the bleeding continue after compression.
TacMed further supports the empowerment of untrained bystanders by providing a variety of products and complete solutions to getting the knowledge and equipment into the public's hands.
