Giving more people the knowledge to act during life-threatening scenarios will empower people to save lives.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 11, 2018
In response to recent tragic events and the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrives initiatives, Mobilize Rescue Systems is partnering with School Health and First Care Provider to empower one million bystanders to become First Care Providers by National Stop the Bleed Day (#NSTBD18) on March 31st, 2018. Mobilize Rescue Systems’ new technology provides a cost-effective method to equip entire communities, organizations, and individuals to stop massive bleeding while EMS is en route.
“It would be impossible to empower an entire community overnight with traditional training methods,” said Seth Goldstein, the Director of Training & Education at Mobilize Rescue Systems. “The Mobilize Rescue app makes it possible for First Care Providers to deliver high-quality care by following the ‘just-in-time’ training algorithm, even if they’ve never set foot in a bleeding control course.”
To achieve the ambitious goal of empowering one million First Care Providers, Mobilize Rescue Systems is partnering with School Health, a national, full-service provider of health supplies and services that is currently working to improve the health and wellbeing of over 78 million students in 133,700 K-12 and higher education schools. Additionally, Mobilize Rescue Systems is partnering with First Care Provider, a non-profit created to improve communities’ resilience to disaster by developing an integrated network of individuals and communities empowered to ensure not another civilian life is lost from a preventable cause of death as a result of trauma.
“Today, keeping kids safe on school and university campuses is as important as the curriculum,” said Jeffrey Pinney, a representative of School Health. “We teamed up with Mobilize Rescue Systems not only because they offer a fantastic system, but also because they offer lifesaving content on their smartphone app that empowers bystanders to act during any emergency.”
The Mobilize Rescue System uses an interactive app that unites the knowledge and equipment bystanders need to respond to medical emergencies. The easily downloadable app will help an untrained bystander assess, manage, and monitor medical emergencies (such as severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, overdoses, seizures, choking, hypothermia and more) in conjunction with Mobilize Rescue Systems’ Public Access Trauma & Medical Emergency Stations or other Mobilize Rescue Systems.
“All you need is the foresight to purchase one of our trauma units, the ability to download our app, and the courage to respond to an emergency if the unthinkable happens,” said Jason Gotham, President and Co-Founder of Mobilize Rescue Systems. “Bystanders are literally in the best place to provide care. Our system makes sure they’re qualified to deliver it.”
The Mobilize Rescue System has been implemented by federal and law enforcement agencies, security and investigations agencies, K-12 schools and universities, public and private organizations, and has already been used to manage multiple medical emergencies across the country.
“Giving more people the knowledge to act during life-threatening scenarios will empower people to save lives,” said Pinney.
