Mobilize Rescue Systems Embarks on Campaign to Stop Massive Bleeding with New Trauma App
Rochester—In response to recent tragic events and the Department of Homeland Security’s
Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrives initiatives, Mobilize Rescue Systems is partnering with
School Health and First Care Provider to empower one million bystanders to become First
Care Providers by National Stop the Bleed Day (#NSTBD18) on March 31st, 2018. Mobilize
Rescue Systems’ new technology provides a cost-effective method to equip entire
communities, organizations, and individuals to stop massive bleeding while EMS is enroute.
“It would be impossible to empower an entire community overnight with traditional training
methods,” said Seth Goldstein, the Director of Training & Education at Mobilize Rescue
Systems. “The Mobilize Rescue app makes it possible for First Care Providers to deliver
high-quality care by following the ‘just-in-time’ training algorithm, even if they’ve never set
foot in a bleeding control course.”
To achieve the ambitious goal of empowering one million First Care Providers, Mobilize Rescue
Systems is partnering with School Health, a national, full-service provider of health supplies and
services that is currently working to improve the health and wellbeing of over 78 million students
in 133,700 K-12 and higher education schools. Additionally, Mobilize Rescue Systems is partnering
with First Care Provider, a non-profit created to improve communities’ resilience to disaster by
developing an integrated network of individuals and communities empowered to ensure not another
civilian life is lost from a preventable cause of death as a result of trauma.
“Today, keeping kids safe on school and university campuses is as important as the
curriculum,” said Jeffrey Pinney, a representative of School Health. “We teamed up with
Mobilize Rescue Systems not only because they offer a fantastic system, but also because
they offer lifesaving content on their smartphone app that empowers bystanders to act
during any emergency.”
The Mobilize Rescue System uses an interactive app that unites the knowledge and
equipment bystanders need to respond to medical emergencies. The easily downloadable
app will help an untrained bystander assess, manage, and monitor medical emergencies
(such as severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, overdoses, seizures, choking, hypothermia and
more) in conjunction with Mobilize Rescue Systems’ Public Access Trauma & Medical
Emergency Stations or other Mobilize Rescue Systems.
“All you need is the foresight to purchase one of our trauma units, the ability to download
our app, and the courage to respond to an emergency if the unthinkable happens,” said
Jason Gotham, President and Co-Founder of Mobilize Rescue Systems. “Bystanders are
literally in the best place to provide care. Our system makes sure they’re qualified to deliver
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.
“It is our belief that giving more people the knowledge of how to act during life-threatening
scenarios will empower people to save lives,” said Pinney.
