Gun-Rights Group Advocating for Trauma Bags in Schools
SIDNEY -- Keeping kids safe in our schools these days is as important as the curriculum. Now a group who advocates arming teachers is also encouraging schools to get trauma kits ready in case anything traumatic happens.
"Anything we can do to save our kids and make a safer area for them to be in, is excellent," said Joyce Vance who has been happy with the Sidney City School District's approach to protecting students.
"I feel comfortable that she's here," said Vance, referring to her granddaughter.
Not only are many staff members in each building trained to respond to an active shooter and have access to weapons; but each classroom has a small medical kit in case of any medical emergency.
"In the event of a gunshot wound or a large laceration, it can be put on and direct pressure can be put on the wound. That's a stop gap until we get medics into the situation," said Deputy Rick Cron, who leads the school response team.
Now district leaders plan on going one step further after recommendations from the Buckeye Firearms Foundation.
"We are well prepared but we need to be better prepared," said Superintendent John Scheu who says they plan to have trauma kits in each school, to include gauze compression bandages, even a chest seal and tourniquets, and train staff on how to use them.
"The tourniquet has saved many a soldier on the battlefield," Kron said.
The Buckeye Firearms Foundation hopes other a Ohio school districts will follow suit. Superintendent Scheu says he sees it as a one time expense that's worth every penny.
"Hopefully you would never have to use such a trauma kit but it's still being proactive and preparing for an emergency in which case I certainly think it would be appropriate to have the trauma kits available," Scheu said.
"Everything we can do to help the kids and save lives, that's what we want to do," said Vance.
