Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, January 9, 2019 – In partnership with Hudson Police Department,Western Reserve Hospital delivered bags filled with emergency supplies to make available for officers in all police vehicles.
The initiative is an example of one of the many ways Western Reserve Hospital and Hudson continue to improve safety within the community together. The emergency bags are available in each police vehicle, making all officers better prepared to help members of the community, as well as each other, when needed.
“Western Reserve Hospital’s generous donation of the emergency bags give our officers easier access to useful equipment that could determine life or death in emergency situations,” said Perry Tabak, Chief of Police, Hudson PD. “I, as well as all of us within Hudson Police Department, could not ask for a better, more community-oriented hospital watching out for our city.”
The emergency bags equip officers with vital first aid supplies including gauze, abdominal pads, rubber gloves, tourniquets, bandages and scissors for use on duty.
“As a city dedicated to its residents, we are grateful for the help Western Reserve Hospital offers in order to keep our surrounding community safe,” said Jane Howington, City Manager. “On behalf of everyone here in Hudson, I thank Western Reserve for their continued support and look forward to further improving the safety and health of our community in the future.”
