Lifesaving bleed control kit has been installed at Dudley College’s Evolve Campus.

A new publicly accessible cabinet, which houses a bleed control kit, followed a safety campaign for more lifesaving equipment across Dudley borough.

The initiative was ran by Dudley Councillor Keiran Casey and The Daniel Baird Foundation, which gifted the equipment to assist passersby halt life-threatening bleeding until medical professionals arrive.

Numerous cabinets and kits have already been donated to businesses such as restaurants and cafes, tourist hubs like the Black Country Museum, and at public locations like Priory Community Centre and Priory Boxing Club.

Mr Casey said: "I'm delighted that Dudley College has been able to join other organisations in Dudley and be part of the community safety campaign myself and my colleague Councillor Karl Denning are running.

"This new kit installed on the side of the Evolve Campus, is another publicly accessible cabinet in a prominent place with lots of public footfall, meaning in the event of an accident on the road or on the pavement, this can be accessed quickly and potentially save a life.

"The work that Lynne and the foundation does has a massive impact, not only in Dudley but across the West Midlands and the wider UK, with these kits being proven time and time again to save lives."
