    Hey all,

    I found this webpage when I was doing research for my LEO friends who are looking for compact BOK.

    Lot of good info here.

    I have couple of ideas:

    Flash Wound Tactical Kit (FWTK)
    I Got Hit Kit (IGHK)
    Flash Wound BOK

    From above mentioned I really like:

    Lee´s idea January 9, 2010 at 3:16 pm:

    I love some of the enteries, but to keep things simple, basic and universal… how about simply:

    Tactical Trauma Kit

    Explanation: in the medical field injury/illness is defined as “Medical” or “Trauma”. “Trauma” can then be broken down into sub-catagories as to cause etc… (this kit treats trauma, not medical).
    “Tactical” describes the type of trauma (not the operator or kit per say) because the specific wounds are trauma related to tactical injuries (could be combat, LEO, civi etc… tactical is non-specific enough as to operator but narrows the trauma). “Kit” because it is too small for a Pack (a pack would be large, able to treat many more type of injuries and multiple people).

  • william bratkowski

    ballistic injury kit

  • TacZen

    I don’t like “Individual” because it could be used for self or others (though i understand the individual refers to the kit owner as opposed to a team kit).
    I don’t like “Medical” because as an EMS provider i think of medical as sickness, not injury.
    I don’t like “pack” becasue i think of something with much more gear.
    I don’t like “First Aid” becasue, while it does describe it correctly (the First Aid provided), again, as an EMS provider i think of “First Aid” as basic layperson aid (as in band-aids), just my perception (basic lay-person classes are usually refered to as “first aid” while other courses are “Life Support”, “causualty care”…). I know the military adopted the IFAK, didn’t like the name.
    I don’t like “life support” as this usually refers to Cardiac arrest (BLS, ALS…).
    I don’t like using “Combat” because i think military and this kit would be used by LEOs and Tac-Civis as well.
    I do like TCCCK but for the “combat” and it would infringe on the TCCC course name…

    Maybe TCCK (Tactical Causualty Care Kit)… it describes the kit by it’s guidelines (the TCCC guidelines etc…) without being an infringment or military specific.

  • TacZen

    Well, Pro-Med has a trademark on “Blow Out Kit”… but do they have “Blow Out Pack”? It’s a variation that fit’s the small little pack’s name and purpose – and is different enough (I believe it has to be like 10% different)
    Besides, I like Blow-Out Pack better because it’s an essentials grab-pack you add to a slightly more thorough Blow-Out Kit.

    Or “Blow-Out Module” (you drop the module into… a cargo pocket, a FAK, a backpack, a Go-Bag, etc.

    BOP – blow-out pack
    BOM – blow-out module
    CTK – critical treatment kit
    ITK – immediate treatment kit
    IRK – immediate response kit
    IRP – immediate response pack
    CRP – critical response pack
    CRK – critical response kit

    Thanks for all the awesome content guys. Keep up the great work!

    i’d call it an “Oh Sh*t! Kit” because if you’re using the components in it, that statement, or a similar one, is bound to be uttered.

  • Jerry
