This exact kit is currently implemented into every public school in the state of South Carolina. The Tramedic® Bleeding Control Kit was selected in a team effort by state partners including Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, the Medical University of South Carolina, Palmetto Health, and Grand Strand Health. They partnered with the state's HPP Advisory Council and South Carolina DHEC to facilitate the project. The Bleeding Control Kits are in place for the 2018-2019 school year, with more than 19,000 kits being distributed throughout the state, and teachers and school officials will receive training on their use.
With the purchase of a Bleeding Control Kit, you will receive access to the Tramedic® Training Portal, where videos detail the components of your kit. The videos are designed to be viewed by users of all ages, including school age children. Not only are they informative and educational, but they could save a life. Additionally, access to the training site allows for a training manager, such as a school resource officer or nurse, to assign videos to personnel and staff as well as track their progress.
