TacMed Solutions, Emergency Trauma Station
The TacMed™ Emergency Trauma Station brings proven life-saving medical supplies and instructions together with the most crucial part of an emergency response: the first responder. 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 encompasses 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. Because of this, each ETS Throw Kit contains illustrated instructions that take the user through step-by-step procedures to ensure proper care and device application based on what they observe for injuries. The instructions are brightly colored for easy identification and laminated to resist deterioration from training, familiarization, or use in actual emergencies. The throw kits themselves are also contained in a heavy weight re-sealable bag for ease of contents inventory, training, or inspection. Each throw kit contains a rescue orange SOF® Tactical Tourniquet-Wide, making its application readily apparent to additional first responders and medical professionals. Also included are the OLAES® Modular Bandage, petrolatum gauze, or an optional set of chest seals, tape board, gloves, emergency blanket, and a brightly colored 1’x1’ casualty marking card to alert rescuers that there is a victim behind closed doors.
Seven (7) throw kits are contained within a bright red kit bag that is clearly labeled “TRAUMA”. Also found in the trauma bag are two (2) Ultra-light poleless litter systems to aid first responders and rescuers with the evacuation of the critically wounded. The entire system resides in a wall-mounted steel cabinet, similar to an AED cabinet that is also clearly marked “TRAUMA KIT”. The case is alarmed, low profile, and has the capability to be hardwired into a building’s existing alarm system so that others may also be alerted. The Emergency Trauma Station is ideally suited for high traffic areas, so that it is readily available for public access.
