CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Safeguard Medical, a global leader in innovative emergency medical technologies and specialized training for first responders, is supporting emergency relief efforts from the devastating earthquake that recently took place in Haiti. Safeguard Medical has teamed up with Project Medishare, in partnership with Disaster Medical Solutions (DMS), to donate proprietary medical supplies.
Safeguard Medical has donated essential emergency response products that can help stop bleeding, assist in surgical procedures, and improve patient outcomes. Many health facilities and hospitals have been severely damaged by the earthquake, adding to the challenges both patients and healthcare workers face, placing much of the burden for treating the injured on first responders, field medical operations, and austere surgical centers. The donated items will be particularly valuable to medical professionals working under these circumstances because they can be used immediately to save lives, regardless of the environment.
“The recent earthquake Haitians have experienced is extremely distressing, and Safeguard Medical is grateful to be in a position to help,” said Adam Johnson, Chief Executive Officer at Safeguard Medical. “This connection with Project Medishare and DMS gave us the opportunity to lend a hand to an organization that is doing vital work during times of extraordinary need. Recovery after these devastating events is not easy, but we are thankful that the donation of Safeguard products will assist emergency responders in their ongoing efforts to save lives.”
The shipment of the donated supplies is expected to arrive in Haiti in the coming days, along with other much needed supplies and equipment.
