The Well Armed Woman Introduces 4 First Aid Kits
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – April 20, 2017 – The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) recently released a new product line of first aid kits. Carrie Lightfoot, CEO of TWAW, worked with Glen Stilson, of Independence Training, to design 4 first aid kits that range from boo boos to battlefield wounds. Stilson relied upon his team of instructors and their combined knowledge of battlefield medicine, wilderness first response, search/rescue, civilian fire and emergency medical services and matched it with the highest quality, field tested products to create a broad range of kits.
“Being a well-armed woman is about so much more than a gun. It’s about being prepared and situationally aware and being ready to act in any situation. We carry a firearm because we care about ourselves, our loved ones and others, so we wanted to introduce a full-line of first aid gear so that we can be ready for anything,” said Lightfoot.
– The Boo Boo Kit contains Band-Aids, medications and creams in a small case that fits easily in a tote bag or large purse. Stilson believes it is essential to keep your basic first aid kit supplies separate from a trauma kit. MSRP: $13.99
– The PFAK (pouch first aid kit) comes with straps on the back so it can be mounted to a belt or equipment. It also includes two front straps for a light source and extra tourniquet. The main kit includes components to stop bleeding and to start breathing. MSRP: $109.99
– The IFAK (individual first aid kit) is a trauma kit packed into a high-visibility, waterproof SeaHorse hard case. Contents include a Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT), two emergency bandages, rolled gauze, hemostatic blood clotting gauze, trauma shears, medical utility tape, set of occlusive seals, emergency blanket and nitrile gloves. MSRP: $149.99
All kits are offered at TWAW’s website, http://thewellarmedwoman.com/range-supplies/first-aid-kits.
Stilson and Lightfoot strongly recommend first-aid training to learn to use the various components of trauma kits and are compiling a diverse offering of articles and videos to support first aid education. The first of which is this introductory video:
During the month of April, all proceeds of sales of the first aid kits will be donated to TWAW Shooting Chapters, a 501(c)3 non-profit to supply each of the 350 chapters across the US with an IFAK trauma kit.
