CONTRIBUTED BY LEE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is deploying Mobilize Rescue Systems to all school resource deputies assigned to Lee County schools. The systems are enclosed in a hard case and contain first responder medical supplies to manage medical emergencies including severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, seizures, choking, chest trauma and burns while fire rescue and EMTs are enroute.
“These portable case systems are designed to provide immediate medical emergency response capability to our SROs in the first moments of an injury or health distress situation,” said Sheriff Jay Jones. “They provide aid while our fire rescue and emergency transport services are on the way to the scene.”
The interactive system utilizes an on-board microprocessor and is designed to aid in assessing, managing and monitoring broad categories of medical emergencies. The system employs protocols and best practices as recommended by the American Heart Association, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care and the American College of Surgeons.
“We plan to provide additional units to our county-wide Tactical Response Team and Detention Center Medical personnel as well,” Jones said.
The Mobilize Rescue systems were acquired from CORO Medical/AED US in Franklin,Tennessee.
