Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity leadership at Stetson University has distributed the award-winning Mobilize Rescue App to all seventy of its members and has placed a Compact Mobilize Rescue unit in the Fraternity’s safe room. The Mobilize Rescue App will help students provide quality medical care in the event of an unthinkable emergency.
Anthony Matteo, the President of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity Alpha Chi Chapter saw the value of the Mobilize Rescue System to help members grow as individuals and make a positive impact in their communities.
"As president, my main role is to support and uplift all my brothers, and my fraternity believes in the mentality that we are the help until professional help arrives,” said Matteo. "Mobilize Rescue Systems is the perfect initiative to fill this gap, and all our members now know how to provide aid to a victim instead of being a bystander. Ideally, we never want to have to use the kit, but we would prefer to always be ready for the unknown. We have given our brothers the opportunity to save a life from a preventable death and the ability to be life changers.”
The Mobilize Rescue App was designed to help untrained bystanders manage severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, seizures, choking, trouble breathing, unconsciousness, hypothermia, and provides instructions to manage an opiate overdose with Naloxone or Narcan (supplies to manage an opiate overdose are not included in the Compact unit, but can be purchased separately).
Once the ambulance arrives, the bystanders can show the professional first responders the Mobilize Rescue App’s "summary screen” that includes a time-stamped summary of important actions taken during the emergency.
"Being able to adopt Mobilize Rescue System into our Fraternity was truly an honor,” said Bryson Pritchard, the (House Father) at Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity. "Giving all our members the know-how to help someone with the user-friendly Mobilize Rescue App is an amazing tool to add to their extensive skill set.”
Organizations across the country are installing the Mobilize Rescue System in response to the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrivesinitiatives.
Schools like Florida Atlantic University and Stanford University have deployed Mobilize Rescue’s bleeding control kits and have distributed the Mobilize Rescue App to students, staff, and faculty who are willing to act as Good Samaritans during an emergency.
"Adopting a kit like this should not be limited to just our brothers at Stetson University,” said Matteo. "This is something that needs to be spread around our other Greek organizations and for everyone on our campus. Delta Sigma Phi is just the start at Stetson.”
