Martin County Schools aim to “stop the bleed” on The Docket

Martin County Schools are being proactive when it comes to another possible school shooting or stabbing.
The Martin County School District wants to set up a new kind of kiosk on school campuses aimed at improving school safety and “stopping the bleed.”
Each kiosk contains kits with enough tourniquets, quick clots, and bandages to save 10 people.
The district has been offered to pilot the program manufactured by CRM Safety Solutions out of New Jersey at no charge.
District Safety and Security Director, Frank Frangella, tells WPTV he will present the program to the board at the next board meeting.

“If we have a lot of people that are injured, we won’t necessarily have enough equipment with the fire rescue truck,” said Frangella. “So what this does is that it bridges a gap. It gives us a little more.”

The kiosks could save many lives if a mass shooting like the Parkland massacre should ever happen again.
If approved the kiosks could start showing up on 26 district campuses as early as the end of the school year.
