University of Arizona Employees Our Community’s Newest Superheroes!

We want to recognize the University of Arizona educators, administrators, and support personnel who joined us Thursday, August 22nd to talk about the vitally important subjects of school safety and community resilience! Pima County is blessed to have exceptional professionals who dedicate their lives to ensuring our children receive a top-notch education, and do so in a safe and secure learning environment. Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE) led the discussion, and also provided the participants with lifesaving instruction in Bleeding Control Interventions.

Civilians need basic training in Bleeding Control principles so they can provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders can take over care of an injured person. Due to many situations, there may be a delay between the time of injury and the time a first responder is on the scene. Without civilian intervention in these circumstances, preventable deaths may occur.

Although no single set of skills or response can fit all injury, trauma, or active violence situations, making sure everyone knows his or her options and can react decisively will save valuable time and lives. As members of our extended community family, these exceptional men and women now have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help save a life!

All of us at ICSAVE send out a special thank you to University of Arizona Emergency Medical Services (UAEMS) for assisting us with this vitally important event. From our family to yours, thank you for your service!
