Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony on ‘Stop The Bleed ‘blood loss control training . . . . https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2019/04/17/exclusive–new-broward-county-sheriff-talks-school-safety-plans
April 17, 2019 – In reference to the Parkland : Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting –
First responders were not able to get to the victims fast enough before they bled out.
“A major arterial bleed, whether it be from an arm or leg, people have less than three minutes to survive,” Tony said. “So do the math on that. It takes us five minutes to get there.”
He would like to see teachers equipped with “Stop the Bleed” kits. He believes that could save lives until law enforcement can arrive to stop the shooter.
