George Tyson (East Pennsboro Township President Commissioner), and a member of The Rotary Club – Mechanicsburg North recently acquired a grant for 217 ‘STOP THE BLEED’ Tourniquets to be shared by East Pennsboro Township & East Pennsboro Area School District.
The plan is to have East Pennsboro Emergency Management and the EP School District create a cache of kits that would be available in the event of a mass casualty incident. This is part of a strategic plan called All Hazards Planning. The all-hazards approach is defined as an integrated approach to emergency preparedness planning that focuses on capacities and capabilities that are critical to preparedness for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters. Having the needed items available saves time which ultimately will save lives.
Both the Township & School District are grateful for the donation to better prepare our community.
