OUR MISSION: TO SAVE LIVES IN THE FACE OF SCHOOL VIOLENCE.
Our New Jersey Schools and Public Safety Agencies have always led in school safety. Their actions are something we are all proud of.
With more mass shootings over the last several years, recent data shows that 20% of fatalities may have been avoided* if wound care had come sooner.
Our schools and public safety agencies can use this new data to continue leading the nation by considering additional recommendations.
Our recommendations are simple.
- Recommend immediate point-of-wound care training to school staff.
(For those who say it’s not an educator’s job, please read our plea on the “To Our Educators” page.)
- Recommend point-of-wound care kits throughout the school.
- Recommend point-of-wound care kits in every patrol car.
- Recommend public safety agencies codify rapid extraction protocols to definitive medical care if emergency medical care is delayed and life is being jeopardized.
