ARK™ active shooter response kit
The ARK™ active shooter response kit provides individuals responding to active shooter situations with the equipment necessary to render aid and initiate evacuation of multiple casualties. The design of the bag and its contents allow responders to maximize the resources available on scene and does not hinder or slow down the assault or clearing process of the structure or incident area.
The contents of the ARK™ are designed to reduce the size of the required rescue force and significantly reduce the evacuation time of seriously injures casualties. By utilizing uninjured individuals on scene to provide stopgap treatment and mark casualty locations, rescue time can be greatly reduced and survivability rates can be increased. The ARK casualty throw kits contain basic treatment material and simple bi-lingual instructions for providing initial treatment. By controlling life threatening hemorrhage and positioning the casualty in a manner that maintains the airway significant time can be gained in the rescue effort.
With multiple storage compartments the ARK is not only for basic treatment. Medics moving with the clearing element can distribute the throw kits as needed while maintaining more advanced equipment in the side pockets for treatment of teammates if necessary.
