SEMLEC SWAT Unit Receives Donation of Tourniquet Kits
The Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (SEMLEC) and Carver Police Chief and SEMLEC SWAT Control Chief Marc Duphily are pleased to announce at the SEMLEC SWAT unit recently accepted a donation of a dozen tourniquet kits by a local non-profit.
The 12 kits, worth about $100 apiece, were donated by the LEO Support Foundation in September. The LEO Support Foundation is a local non-profit that raises money to purchase protective and life-saving equipment for police officers.
LEO Support Foundation President Michael Best delivered the kits to Chief Duphily personally.
Each kit contains a C-A-T tourniquet, QuikClot and trauma dressing, all of which is used to stop a wounded person’s bleeding.
“We want to thank Mr. Best and everyone at the LEO Support Foundation for their generous donation,” Chief Duphily said. “These kits went directly to the members of our SWAT unit and gives them the tools to help stop someone from bleeding during a critical incident.”
