Collaborating with local first responders, My Medic customized individual first aid kits focused on pre-hospital trauma life support equipment. Our kits were delivered directly to the first responder organizations impacted by current events in the region. Not only did we distribute these kits to resource depleted areas, but our experts also trained hundreds of first responders in the use of the donated life saving kits.
At the request of local government leadership, our experts focused on teaching basic trauma patient assessment, patient packaging, and transporting a patient to definitive care. Training was focused on pre-hospital care providers and emergency room physicians. Our teams delivered training in life saving skills including establishing a patient’s airway, control of critical bleeding, identification of critical orthopedic injuries, water rescue, and rapid transport via helicopter.
Working with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), our disaster response experts continue to support the Region Search and Rescue Team training. This disaster response capacity building initiative continues to provide the latest international search and rescue methodology. Our disaster response experts have years of deployment experience with some of the top international teams on the globe. Current Caribbean disaster training initiatives focus on wide area assessment, victim extrication, swift water and rope rescue, and confined space patient treatment and transportation.
