Customer Testimonial – SOF®TT-Wide Use – November 2017

Customer Testimonial: “I install windows in houses for a living, and we were trying to pull out the window sash of the window that was from 1927. The glass was thin and the new guy pushed on it just enough that it flexed and the glass exploded. A large piece of it ended up bouncing off of the windowsill and into my arm. Thanks for the kit, it kicked ass this week when in need” [Direct pressure didn’t stop the bleeding so a SOF®TT-Wide was applied.]

Happy to hear a customer testimonial from a double SOFTT-W use in the field.

Testimonial – TacMed™ Convertible Drop Leg Pouch – August 27, 2015

We recently were written by a DC Metro Police Sergeant who shared his experience utilizing his TacMed™ Convertible Drop Leg Pouch. While at his station, a man walked in suffering multiple stab wounds… Through the trachea, an eviscerating wound to the right abdomen, and a gaping wound in the back. The sergeant used almost every component in his Drop Leg, including shears, gauze, and occlusive dressings. His Drop Leg holster was open and flapping around the entire time, and he said every component stayed in place until he grabbed it for use. The victim is expected to survive with minimal long-term disability. Big thanks to this Sergeant for his lifesaving work and support.

Lafayette Police: Trauma Kits Played a Major Role in Outcome of Grand 16 Shooting – July 29, 2015

Lafayette Police Department officers are saying their Downed Officer Kits played a major role in the outcome of last Thursday’s shooting at the Grand Theater in Louisiana. It was the first time the kits had been used since the department received them less than six months ago. The Lafayette Police Training Coordinator said that because officers often arrive first on the scene, “the department felt it was necessary to prepare officers with hands-on training to handle extreme trauma situations. Because officers had the kits and were trained how to use them, police were able to begin treating victims inside the theater immediately.” In this case, officers were on scene and in the building within 50 seconds of receiving the call. More details can be viewed here.
