Blackwater Tactical LifeSaver Kit
Backup Training has the announced the introduction of its Blackwater Tactical LifeSaver Kit for law enforcement and first responders. This kit combines an intense 4 hour Tactical LifeSaver Training Course along with a LifeSaver blowout kit. The LifeSaving kit is not designed to turn officers into medics, but rather, to teach the time-critical skills and provide tools that may permit survival long enough for victims to obtain definitive medical care.
“Our primary goal is to improve survivability in accidental and non-accidental, life-threatening injuries,” stated Rick Gallia, Backup Training’s Director of Operations. “We have offered outstanding life saving training developed by EMT Doctors Stein and Colovos for several years. Now we’ve added valuable lessons learned in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and provided a life saving kit with the tools necessary to keep an officer alive in the field until definitive medical care is available. It’s simply something that every officer and first responder should have at all times.” The Tactical Lifesaver Kit includes a 4 hour training course with either a pocket pouch or vest pouch containing:
1 Asherman Chest Seal
1 Nasopharyngeal Airway
1 BD Angiocath ™Autoguard™
1 C-A-T™ Tourniquet, One-Handed
1 CELOX™ Hemostat
The Blackwater Tactical LifeSaver is priced at $140 per kit. More information can be found on the company's website at www.theBackup.com.
