the official kit for the Specialized Tactics for Operational Rescue and
Medicine (S.T.O.R.M.™) courses developed through a joint effort between
the National Tactical Officers Association and the Medical College of
Georgia-Center of Operational Medicine.
The S.T.O.R.M.™ Operator IFAK is one of our smallest Improved
First Aid Kits (IFAK) that was specifically designed to mitigate the
three leading causes of preventable death in the tactical environment
for penetrating trauma (60% extremity bleeding, 33% tension
pneumothorax, 6% airway obstruction). This kit provides the necessary
equipment for the user/operator to administer immediate
self-aid/buddy-aid to injured casualties at the point of wounding.
Utilizing Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Guidelines and lessons
learned from the battlefield, this kit provides law enforcement officers
and other public safety personnel with the needed tools to reduce the
unnecessary loss of life due to the preventable causes of death
encountered in the tactical environment. Made to meet the demands of the
austere environment, our modular system can be worn as a drop down leg
rig, attached directly to the duty belt or attached to the assault vest
or body armor with MOLLE/PALS-style connectors.
