The First-In Response kit is a critical component of the Rescue Task Force. It was designed to provide the RTF team the medical components to stop major hemorrhage, maintain airway, treat chest injuries to support respiratory function and prevent hypothermia.
It is important to empower the public to respond when and where incidents happen. Designed to comply with the Department of Homeland Security's "Stop the Bleed" initiative, this complete bleeding control station is easy to identify, access, and utilize. The individual IFAKs each contain the essential tools to address severe bleeding, including an instruction card for quick and easy component identification and use for civilians with little or no training. Eight individual IFAKs are contained in a pouch, held in place by hook-and-loop backing, making it easy to grab all contents, and distribute individual kits to multiple people during mass casualty incidents. A Rescue Essentials QuikLitter™ is also included to provide the means for quick casualty extraction if needed.
