Be Prepared In The Event Of A Catastrophic Bleeding Injury

Published: Monday, February 19, 2018

Injuries are the leading cause of death in people under the age of 45. According to the United States Coast Guard, in 2016 alone, there were 171 documented boating injuries of a person being struck by the propeller of a vessel. 15% of these injuries resulted in death. The boat propeller isn't the only cause of bleeding injuries on the water. Fishing, water sports, and floating debris in the water are just a few additional examples that could lead to a catastrophic bleeding injury.

Whether you are enjoying a leisurely cruise, engaging in water sports, going fishing, or loading/unloading your boat, you need to be prepared for emergencies on the water. If a bleeding accident occurs, you or a loved one can die in minutes from blood loss. Advanced medical help may not be standing by or even available for hours.

For less than $25, The TAC PAC kit is specifically assembled for simplicity in the event of a bleeding emergency and has everything you need to control bleeding, including pressure and packing dressings and a tourniquet for extreme cases. In an emergency, you don’t have time to look for bandages, dressings, or advanced equipment. You need it fast, close, and ready.

You don't have to be a medical provider to save a life. The TAC PAC has an easy to follow video at that demonstrates each item in the kit and how to control bleeding in an emergency. We encourage you the review the video frequently, so you are prepared for any situation.

The TAC PAC can be taken anywhere — in your car, boat, motorcycle, or to your workplace. It was designed for people of all ages and skill levels by our team of law enforcement and medical professionals. It is compact, made of high quality construction materials, and is assembled personally by our staff in the USA.
