Oconto County Sheriff’s Office installs trauma kits and trains 1,400 teachers for disaster preparedness in schools across their seven-district county
Oconto County Sheriff’s Office announced its partnership with us to fully equip schools across the county with basic trauma kits and provide all teachers in the county with emergency response training. With funding from the Northeast Wisconsin Healthcare Emergency Response Coalition (HERC) – an organization that has previously partnered with citizenAID – more than 400 of citizenAID’s Public Treatment Kits will be placed in every classroom and every teacher will receive the Educators, School Administrators and Coaches (ESAC) online courses throughout the seven-district county.
Chief Deputy of the Oconto County Sheriff’s Office Ed Janke released the following statement :
“We’re constantly trying to find ways to make our schools and communities safer, and this partnership is a step in the right direction. The schools aren’t the only ones benefiting from Stop The Bleed tools that empower the public to save lives – training every single teacher across the county will help the community as a whole and make everyone safer. As a result, citizenAID is very valuable for folks in Oconto County, and we couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership.”
