McQuaid Jesuit has empowered its staff, students, and teachers to stop massive bleeding and manage other critical medical emergencies with the Mobilize Rescue System.
"This initiative not only improves the preparedness of our school community; it empowers our students with life skills and lessons that will serve them well far after they graduate our halls,” said Dr. Christopher Parks, the Dean of Students at McQuaid Jesuit.
McQuaid Jesuit is now equipped with Public Access Rescue Stations (fully stocked with bleeding control and airway management supplies), two Comprehensive Rescue Systems and one Mobile Rescue System with supplies to manage severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, overdoses, seizures, choking, hypothermia and more. More importantly, McQuaid Jesuit is distributing the Mobilize Rescue App to its students, faculty, staff, and even parents – so that anyone can respond to medical emergencies that might take place on campus.
"Bystanders can deliver high-quality care by following the ‘just-in-time’ training algorithm in our unique app,” said Jason Gotham, President and Co-Founder of Mobilize Rescue Systems. "Making sure schools are prepared to respond to medical emergencies has never been this convenient and effective.”
The simplicity of the Mobilize Rescue App makes it possible for schools, like McQuaid Jesuit, to quickly and effectively empower entire campuses overnight. Studies have shown that the effectiveness of first aid and CPR training decreases over time, but when bystanders have the Mobilize Rescue app on their phones they can access the knowledge of experts at the push of a button. The easily downloadable app will help an untrained bystander assess, manage, and monitor medical emergencies while EMS is on the way.
"Empowering schools is incredibly important to us,” said Jeff Gerstner, CEO of Mobilize Rescue Systems. "We know that when our students have the tools necessary to save lives, they will have a huge impact in their communities.”
TheMobilize 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.
