Sorry for the slow reply. Need to go fix my notifications.
We have a basic first aid kit that has all the usual items for cuts and scrapes, stomach issues, headaches and pain. We also have trauma kits. The way we've set these up is individual kits. Each kit has one SOFTT-W tourniquet, a quikclot combat gauze, an Israeli bandage, halo chest vent seals, EMT shears, a sharpie marker, an emergency blanket, and a pair of nitrile gloves. We shrink-wrap these in clear plastic with a contents list and the date it was packed facing out. Here's a short video of the finished product:
And the items laid out:
As for training, we are setting up a one day class with a local guy who trains folks specifically on treating major hemorrhage and shock. He'll train us on our own kits. The training will be recurring annually and all our church officers and staff will be required to take it.
We keep some of the kits in our childcare area and the rest with us in the gym where we worship (we're a church plant).
Not sure about response times, yet. We haven't drilled anything.
Have a Merry Christmas, all!
edit to add: We currently have 5 kits and I'm about to complete another 5. The question of how many to have is a tough one. In a mass cas event, the need could be significant. So the plan is to occasionally add kits as we're able. Right now we average 70 in worship, so we won't exceed that many kits any time soon.
