Hot Springs PD – Officer Has Second TQ Save – October 2016

For the second time, this Hot Springs Police Department officer used his SOF® Tactical Tourniquet Wide to provide lifesaving care to a victim. He applied the tourniquet to a woman bleeding out from a severed vein in her arm after a car accident. Previously, this officer used his tourniquet on a gunshot victim who had been hit in the femoral artery and would have bled to death if not for the officer’s quick action. These officers have received specialty casualty care training so they are able to assist themselves, fellow officers, and injured civilians in the event of a traumatic injury.
