New Jersey district equips each school with Tramedic trauma kits
ROXBURY, NJ Jan. 26, 2017 The school district of Roxbury, New Jersey, is the first in the nation to outfit every school with trauma kits thanks to a partnership between the Roxbury Township Police Department and the Roxbury Rotary Club. Their kit of choice, the Tramedicube™, is located in every public and private school as well as the library and rec center. These kits give each school the ability to treat a full range of traumatic injuries including massive bleeding, blocked airways, chest wounds, and more.
The former police chief of Roxbury, James Simonetti, emphasized that these kits are not just for serious situations such as active shooters but for general preparedness: "… be it an accident or something else, we want to be prepared. We're fortunate in Morris County that every police officer is outfitted with a trauma kit, and I felt that the schools needed them too." Roxbury Township Police carry trauma kits from Tactical Medical Solutions®. Tramedicubes™ contain some of the same products but they are adapted for civilian use.
The Tramedicubes™ are designed to be used by all people, including the untrained bystander, so that anyone can provide immediate care. Statistics have shown that traumatic incidents in schools are increasing annually, and these kits empower faculty, staff, and students to become the immediate first responders. "It's a self-contained kit that comes with both the product and the training on how to use it, and that's key," said former Chief Simonetti. Simple and color-coded instructions guide the user to the proper equipment to treat the most serious injuries first. In addition, training videos detail how to use the kit components, so when the time comes, bystanders are already equipped with the knowledge to respond.

In today's world you never know when a serious injury will occur. Being prepared for when it happens doesn't have to be scary, overly expensive, or difficult to manage. The goal of Tramedic™ is to place real life saving treatments in regular people's hands because sometimes injuries are so serious you don't have time to wait for help. Tramedic™ accomplishes this by incorporating a mix of intuitive products, simple instructions, and effective training videos to ensure you and your organization are prepared for the worst.
