Yet another TQ success story….

I saw this on my news feed yesterday.  It’s yet another example of law enforcement needing training in TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) type training, and in use of TQs (tourniquets).

This has been slowly realized in many places, and TQs have had a bad rep for years, undeservedly so.

What many people think they know about TQs is flat out wrong.  If you are LE and your department hasn’t given you this training, then you need to get it yourself.  Then start carrying a CAT or SOF-T TQ on your person when you are at work.  In uniform I carry a CAT in the leg pocket of my duty pants.
