June 30, 2018

Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps Members provided hands-on bleeding control training for the Commack School District on June 25. Bleeding control (B-con) kits and supplies were used during the session with Huntington and Southside
hospitals’ emergency response teams in tandem with the NorthWell Health. B-con kits, which can be used during a trauma, include tourniquets and gauze, among other things. More than 350 teachers, administrators and staff were given the opportunity to practice with the equipment following an informational B-con presentation by Tim Dackow, NP, coordinator of trauma injury prevention and EMS outreach for NorthWell Health. Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps members trained the group on how to use the tourniquets while Northwell’s emergency response teams provided training with gauze -- either of which can be used to stop a person from bleeding out. A donation from Southside Hospital gave the Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps an opportunity to give a dozen B-con kits to the Commack School District. This donation was recognized at a Commack school board meeting on June 14.
