Stop the Bleed

In support of the Government mandated Stop the Bleed campaign, ADS is addressing the need for an Active Shooter Incident Response Kit that allows bystanders and civilians without prior medical training to save the life of a victim at a moment’s notice. Through a joint partnership, ADS was able to integrate Phokus Research Group’s trauma kit and Cardiac Science’s AED into a user-friendly first responder kit that provided the same quality of care as an EMT or a Paramedic.

On display in the ADS booth, see these two products first-hand and better understand how they can easily be integrated into buildings or facilities and provide the individual with timely instruction on how to Stop the Bleed.
