We provide Rapaid emergency bandage kits at no additional charge for every Crowdguard HVM deployment.
At Crowdguard, our mission is to protect people and assets from vehicle attacks and errant drivers with appropriate and proportionate HVM deployment, based on a threat, vulnerability and risk assessment, and aligned to your risk, operational requirements and budget.
But we know that we cannot protect people from every risk, and we want to do everything we can to mitigate the impact of an attack, accident or incident should the worst happen. That’s why we have entered into a partnership with Rapaid; an emergency bandages charity that provides military grade emergency bandage kits for workplaces, public spaces and public realm environments.
We are supporting the events industry and those responsible for the public realm as they prepare for Martyn’s Law(Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill) and we are passionate about the role of HVM in an overall counter terrorism plan. Our HVM mitigates risk, but if the worst should happen, our Rapaid bandages will reduce the consequences. Given that we know some of those who perished in the Manchester Arena attack might have survived if there had been emergency bandages available to stem the bleeding, we see both prevention and emergency response as important factors in delivering the principles of Martyn’s Law.
Our Rapid emergency bandage kits are mounted in an accessible location at each HVM installation and each kit contains full laminated instructions, along with the military grade bandages and a tourniquet.
Each sterile bandage is individually sealed and can be opened easily. The bandage has a padded area which is applied to the wound, and the remainder of the bandage is used to wrap the wound. It is fed through integral tourniquet, which can then be twisted to tighten the bandage and positioned over the wound to apply pressure.
