First Aid and Trauma Technology

American Rock Salt, the largest producing salt mine in the U.S., has gone above and beyond compliance to improve safety — by installing the life-saving Mobilize Rescue System throughout its facilities. American Rock Salt’s environmental manager, Joe Bucci Jr., explained that the mine has a safety program that is “both proactive and effective.” “That being said, if an accident does occur, having the right life-saving training, supplies and equipment is vital,” Bucci said. “The implementation of the Mobile Rescue System throughout our mine will help ensure that proper medical care is administered quickly and effectively.”
Called the “Cadillac of First Aid Kits” by WIRED, the Mobilize Rescue System includes an innovative diagnostic app that will help miners assess, manage and monitor medical emergencies until professional first responders arrive. Each unit includes all the equipment necessary to manage severe bleeding, seizures, choking, cardiac arrest, opiate overdoses and much more. “The app provides ‘just-in-time’ training that empowers bystanders to provide life-saving care,” said Seth Goldstein, director of training and education at Mobilize Rescue Systems. “The app ensures that an immediate responder, the person present when the emergency occurs, doesn’t have to rely only on memory in the heat of the moment.”
