The NEW Public Access Trauma Kit (PAcT kit) is designed for people with no medical training to save a life. The PAcT kit is designed for use in an emergency when every second counts, and has been created as a direct result of the Arena bombing in Manchester. A casualty who is losing a lot of blood must be treated within a couple of minutes!
The PAcT kit is also equipped with an easy to read ‘Trauma Card’ that gives very clear instructions on putting a casualty into the ‘recovery position’. The recovery position is a life saving must for non medical trained people who if asked, would be able to make a difference in an emergency.
The ‘Trauma card’ also shows how to stop bleeding using the super-simple STAT Tourniquet from a severe wound or amputation in 5 easy to follow steps. The STAT Tourniquet has been chosen because its use requires NO previous training, and is extremely quick to apply, ensuring multiple casualties are attended to very quickly! It’s easy to use because it can be applied in the same way as a simple cable tie. PLUS it has a timer device to let paramedics know how long it has been on the casualty. A hugely beneficial advantage that no other tourniquet offers.
Which venues should have a PAcT kit?
Bars, restaurants, and any venue that comes under the heading of hospitality. Also larger venues including stadiums, arenas and airports. Anywhere large groups of people gather. PAcT kits should not be confused with first aid kits. First aid kits are not suitable for mass casualty and terrorist type attacks.
There are laws going through parliament right now that emphasise the importance of all types of venues where large numbers of people come together being better prepared. These laws are as a direct result of the Arena bombing in 2017 where 22 people lost their lives because insufficient medical preparation had been made. A phone call, or email is all it takes to ensure your venue is legally compliant.
