Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy Lyonelle DeVeaux responded to a 9-1-1 hangup call in an apartment complex on a Friday evening. Shortly after arriving, she had been shot three times and was fighting for her life.
One of the scariest things any of us can respond to is an officer down call. In this podcast, I talk about one particular incident and what we can learn from it.
- ITS ETA Kit: Perfect for the patrol officer’s bail out bag. The only thing I’d have to add is a SOF-T Tourniquet. For what it is worth, I own both the kit and the tourniquet.
- 68W Advanced Field Craft – Combat Medic Skills: Excellent book on “first aid” written for combat medics. The same skills apply for cops. This is another book that I own and highly recommend. It isn’t cheap, but worth every penny.
- 2010 Tactical Combat Casualty Care Guidelines – The folks at ITS Tactical highlight the 2010 TCCC update. Good information to know and use if you are in a jam.
- Compact Tear Off Medical Pouch – Original S.O.E. gear makes some of the highest quality pouches, slings and vests you can find. The Compact Tear Off Medical Pouch is a great pouch that can attach to any of your gear or ride in the center compartment of a bailout bag. It is just large enough to hold what you really need in a tight situation. The gear is all made in the USA.
