Vail Educators Ready to Save a Life!
We want to recognize the 70 Vail Unified School District educators, administrators and support personnel who joined us Wednesday, August 28th 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. Each day these men and women educate and protect our county’s 150,000 children and do so with distinction! Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE) led the discussion, and also provided the participants with lifesaving Bleeding Control Training.
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!
