Community Bleed Kit (VTQ) at a Glance

A Public Access Bleed Control Kit is a kit designed to provide immediate assistance in controlling severe bleeding in emergency situations. These kits are typically found in public places, such as schools, airports, or government buildings, and are intended for use by trained individuals or first responders.

The contents of a Public Access Bleed Control Kit may vary, but typically include items such as tourniquets, gauze, bandages, and gloves. These items can be used to quickly and effectively control bleeding until more advanced medical treatment can be administered.

The purpose of these kits is to improve the chances of survival for individuals experiencing severe bleeding by providing quick access to life-saving tools. By making these kits widely available in public spaces, more people can be prepared to respond in emergency situations and potentially save lives.
