There are two types of triage: simple and advanced.
The outcome may result in determining the order and priority of emergency treatment or the balancing of patient distribution in a mass-casualty setting.
We offer supplies that allow for prioritizing patients based on the severity of their condition.
We also offer exceptional volume pricing with purchase order(s) accepted.

Serious emergencies and disasters will almost inevitably result in casualties. While some may be serious enough to be life-threatening, others will not need immediate emergency care. CERTs and other search and rescue personnel will often be called upon to determine an order to care – this is what ‘triage’ actually is – it means to sort. During a crisis where there are injured people, it is vital to treat those who are in danger of succumbing to their wounds first.
Those responsible for assisting during an emergency will find that the Incident Command Triage Unit will provide all the help they will need in sorting through the victims and setting up the proper treatment areas. Medical personnel will handle most of the injuries when there are large numbers of casualties, but if they are able to assist those who are most seriously hurt first, the outcome of the situation will be more favorable. Safety vests and such useful items as a bullhorn and walkies-talkies are also included in this kit.
In order to make the sorting more efficient, it has been found that the use of triage tags and tape can focus help where it is needed most. Besides triage tape, Triage Tarps will allow quick identification of the level of injury, once again getting help to those who need it most.
Most search and rescue personnel, including CERTs, receive training in basic first aid and trauma care. Often, these people are the first on the scene, and their quick intervention can help to save lives – if they have the equipment needed to do so. This is the time when a Multi-person Medical Trauma Unit can make a profound difference. Being able to handle serious bleeding, burns, and the first stages of shock will mean more saved lives. Depending on the probable number of casualties that your rescue group may be responsible for, we offer units that can deal with from 50 to 1,000 persons.
Fast response, fast triage, and fast treatment are the keys to preserving as many lives as possible during a disaster – make sure your search and rescue group is prepared.
