Owensboro Health has presented the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office with 40 individual Medical First Aid Kits (M-FAK), one for each uniformed deputy.
The staff with the Trauma Services Department will provide “Stop The Bleed” training in conjunction with issuing the kits.
“Stop the Bleed” is a national awareness campaign that encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before medical assistance arrives.
Working with DCSO leadership, the Trauma Services Department provided each deputy with an individual first aid kit, which includes a tourniquet, chest seal, gloves, bandage and emergency trauma dressing.
Daviess County Fiscal Court would like to thank Owensboro Health for this donation and the ongoing support for law enforcement in our community.
