WPD receive trauma kits from WMC
Because Law Enforcement are often the first on any scene needing to secure it before Emergency Personnel can even enter the area medical kits have been requested and received.
Often Law Enforcement need to provide life saving measures before Emergency Medical Services can even arrive.
It is vital that those Officers have the equipment and training to provide those measures.
According to Winchester City’s website this is why the Winchester Trauma Leadership have requested and received $10,000 worth of equipment.
The request included 45 kits of medical grade trauma management products.
The kits are provided by the Winchester Medical Center (WCM) Foundation and will be regularly updated and swapped out for hospital use before they expire.
These kits include all the items necessary for Officers to begin lifesaving measures immediately.
Training of Law Enforcement personnel will be provided by Winchester Fire and Rescue Personnel.
