Aftermath Awards QuikClot Kits to Carver Police Department
July 21st, 2016
AURORA, Ill. (July 21st, 2016) – Aftermath Services, a national crime scene clean up and biohazard removal company, has announced that the Carver Massachusetts Police Department is the winner of its Backing the Blue contest, which awarded $500 in lifesaving QuikClot kits to the department. QuikClot kits are used by law enforcement across the nation to provide emergency triage to injured victims with life-threatening injuries. Aftermath hosted the contest as part of its ongoing platform to provide education to and appreciation for law enforcement officials who protect communities across the country.
The kits were awarded to Carver Police Chief Marc Duphily by Aftermath’s Manager of Law Enforcement Relations in New England, Kristen McKenna. During an interview with McKenna, Chief Duphily spoke on the value and importance of the kits:
“The Carver Police Department is very fortunate to have received eight Quick Clot kits from Aftermath. These kits are an essential item for our patrol officers to carry in this day and age. They give officers the opportunity to assist when someone has suffered a traumatic injury such as a gunshot wound. This also includes the ability to help themselves in the case of such an injury. This gift allows us to begin equipping our officers with the latest life-saving technology. I am extremely grateful for the assistance Aftermath has provided with these kits. This kind gesture by Aftermath has helped to ensure the safety of our officers and citizens.”
Aftermath has a longstanding commitment to raise awareness and support programs that promote safety and education. The Company routinely offers education and informational sessions on topics that concern public safety, including personal protective equipment (PPE) training and bloodborne pathogen safety. Aftermath also sponsors contests and awards grants year-round to initiatives and programs, such as the K9 Contest and the Collegiate Scholarship, that further community learning and security.
