Group aims to arm officers with life-saving trauma kits

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- Shawnee Tactical Solutions is holding a Stop the Bleeding Drive.
    
The group offers firearm and survival training, including a course using trauma kits, which include items that could save lives in emergencies, such as tourniquets.  

Now, it aims to arm officers in our region with those tools.

"Its all one big team, it doesn't matter if you are getting out of a patrol car at the scene of a wreck or coming out of an ambulance or loading them into a helicopter or receiving them in the ER. One person can't just do it alone," said Andrew Misker.

The group hopes to provide the 100 kits to local agencies...
    
The kits cost between $25 to $100.
