FCSO Deputies To Be More Prepared For Medical Emergencies

Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System Installed In 15 Patrol Cars

Posted

Bunnell, FL - In an effort to keep Flagler County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) deputies patrolling the western portion of the county prepared for medical emergencies,  the Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System has been installed in 15 cars. The reason, according to Sheriff Rick Staly, is that rescue response can take longer in that part of the county.

The Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System includes an extensive set of medical supplies to help in life-threatening medical issues. Some of the medical issues that this Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System treats are severe bleeding, seizures, choking, hypothermia, broken bones, allergic reactions, and much more.

The deputies will not be left to guess which treatments should be used. An automated computer will prompt deputies through a series of questions to help guide them through treatment. The computer’s questions will ask Deputy to determine what area of the body needs help, or what the medical issue is, and then it will instruct the deputy on how to use the supplies to treat the person. This technology and equipment will supplement the Automated External Defibrillator (AED’s) currently issued to every marked patrol car.

“Often our deputies arrive on the scene first and I’m excited to add this capability to help them render first-aid and save lives,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “This capability will enhance emergency medical response, especially in western Flagler County.”

Flagler deputies are already trained in first-aid and CPR. These units cost $2,100.00 each.
