Students, staff, faculty and parents at Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado learned to stop massive bleeding with the Mobilize Rescue System this past week. Connor Wist, a Denver 7 Morning News Reporter, covered the story of how the Mobilize Rescue App is being used to save lives in the event of unexpected medical emergencies.
Safety is of the utmost importance to Rick Sullivan, the school’s Vice President of Operations, which is why teachers and staff members began training with the system in January as part of Regis Jesuit's comprehensive emergency response plan. The Mobilize Rescue System can be located alongside every AED, near each coach, and a Compact Rescue System (for treating the most immediate life-threats) is placed in every classroom.
"The Mobilize Rescue System equipment will allow our staff to respond quickly to a medical emergency with confidence and the needed information to provide the proper first aid,” said Sullivan.
The Mobilize Rescue System is a new technology that unites knowledge and equipment to help an untrained bystander save a life while they wait for the ambulance to arrive. The system uses an interactive app to help a bystander manage critical medical emergencies such as severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, overdoses, seizures, choking, hypothermia and more. The system also provides the medical supplies bystanders need to save lives, in the form of a Comprehensive, Mobile, Compactor Public Access Rescue Station.
"Most people want to help during an emergency,” said Dr. Joseph Bart, the Medical Director at Mobilize Rescue Systems. "They want to do more, but they’re not necessarily sure how. The app makes it possible for them to act.”
In response to recent tragic events and the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrives initiatives, Mobilize Rescue Systems’ new technology provides a cost-effective method to equip entire communities, organizations, and individuals to stop massive bleeding while EMS is en route. The Mobilize Rescue System has been implemented by federal and law enforcement agencies, security and investigations agencies, K-12 schools and universities, public and private organizations, and has already been used to manage multiple medical emergencies across the country.
"The Mobilize Rescue System is the perfect addition to our campus safety program and will help ensure that we respond properly to the emergency medical needs of our students, employees and visitors,” said Sullivan.
