By February 13, 2017Industry News

Phokus Research Group, a tactical capabilities inventor for the warfighter, first developed the Active Shooter Trauma Kit when they were approached by customers who needed a kit they could easily access that was also customizable and flexible.

The wall-mounted kit includes a small, medium, or large bleeding control kit with removable, velcro heavyweight vinyl bags, as well as a Cardiac Science Powerheart® G5 AED Automatic.
