Dayton PD Receives Tourniquet Kits
The Dayton Police Department recently received 25 Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) kits donated by Memorial Hermann Life Flight.
“Our officers can carry these compact tourniquets on their belts so they are always prepared should the need arise,” said Police Chief Robert Vine. “We appreciate the partnership we have with Memorial Hermann Life Flight and their generosity in providing our officers with these life-saving devices.”
The C-A-T is a one-handed tourniquet that avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised, allowing officers to quickly use the device on themselves or on someone else who has suffered a traumatic injury.
