The Go-Kit Concept
The “Go-Kit” Concept is recommended by school safety advocates to support the classroom preparedness phase of an emergency management plan. Also known as emergency kits or ready bags,
Maintaining a safe and secure educational environment is a priority of school boards, administrators, teachers, support staff and parents. In many cases a teacher is the immediate person responsible for student safety and is typically the first person to assist students in any major or minor incident.
Providing teachers with critical emergency supplies that are readily accessible is a vital part of being prepared. Edu-Care Services, Inc. has designed a “Go-Kit” to be used specifically by teachers.
Two Versions – Standard & Bleed Control
Our Standard Go-Kit is a collection of readily accessible supplies to support teachers in both emergency and non-emergency situations including lockdowns, evacuations, fire drills, recess, field trips, etc.
Our Go-Kit+ Bleed Control Version includes all the contents of the Standard Go-Kit with the addition of a 22 piece Trauma Kit with tourniquet to address traumatic bleeding emergencies.
Why a Go-Kit with Bleed Control?
It is essential to quickly stop blood loss when waiting for emergency responders or on route to the hospital in an emergency bleeding situation. Our standard Go-Kit includes a first aid kit for scrapes and scratches but is not intended to address life-threatening bleeding situations.
Our Go-Kit+, in addition to the first aid kit in the standard Go-Kit, includes a 22 piece Trauma Pack with Tourniquet for stopping excessive blood flow to enable teachers and bystanders to perform life-saving bleed control actions for unexpected traumatic injuries and emergencies.
The Trauma Pack is also available to affordably enhance previously purchased standard Go-Kits. Read on to learn more or [Shop Now].
