New Orleans EMS Foundation Receives Bleeding Control Kit Donation To Be Used at New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

Posted on

The New Orleans EMS Foundation received a generous donation of 10 Bleeding Control Kits from Rescue Essentials, a retail company specializing in Tactical EMS supplies, trauma gear, and equipment.  New Orleans EMS (NOEMS), the exclusive medical services provider at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, will install the kits in strategic locations throughout the facility.

The Bleeding Control Kits will allow individuals to immediately control the loss of blood from severe injuries. Each kit contains two sealed packs with a CAT tourniquet, compression/pressure dressings; shears, gloves, and a marker.

A recent trip to New Orleans for the EMS World Expo in October, 2016 inspired the owners of Rescue Essentials to donate to the host facility. The company supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “Stop the Bleed” campaign, which advocates the placement of bleeding control kits in high traffic, publicly available areas to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives until appropriate medical care is available.

“The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Department of Public Safety supports the ‘Whole Community’ approach to emergency management.  Our established relationship with NOEMS facilitated the opportunity to integrate a community-based resource that will enhance the collective preparedness of MCCNO staff and increase the community’s resiliency,” said Brett Slocum, Assistant Director of Public Safety at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
