LEMART Treatment Kits –Your Donation Can Help Save a Life
The Chicago Police Foundation is funding an initiative to provide all Chicago Police Officers trained in the special Law Enforcement Medical and Rescue Training (LEMART) technique with customized treatment kits. These life-saving kits supply the necessary equipment to allow LEMART trained police officers on the scene in tactical and emergency situations to administer rapid, on-site aid for serious wounds and injuries until appropriate medical help can arrive.
Your donation of $100.00 will make it possible for the Chicago Police Foundation to provide LEMART trained police officers with one of these important life-saving kits that can benefit both the police and the citizens they serve in Chicago.
