On Tuesday, September 21, 2021, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office FCSO placed 15 Mobile Comprehensive Rescue Systems into the patrol cars. The units are being issued to deputies that patrol western Flagler County where rescue response can take longer.  Additional units were issued to FCSO’s SWAT and ERT teams as they are often deployed to high-risk situations.

The Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System includes an extensive set of medical supplies to help in life-threatening medical issues. Some of the medical issues that this Mobilize Comprehensive Rescue System treats are severe bleeding, seizures, choking, hypothermia, broken bones, allergic reactions, and much more.

The automated computer will prompt Deputy’s through a series of questions to help guide the on-scene deputy. The computer’s questions will ask Deputy to determine what area of the body needs help, or what the medical issue is, and then it will instruct the deputy on how to use the supplies to treat the person. This technology and equipment will supplement the Automated External Defibrillator (AED’s) currently issued to every marked patrol car.

“Often our deputies arrive on the scene first and I’m excited to add this capability to help them render first-aid and save lives,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “This capability will enhance emergency medical response, especially in western Flagler County.”

Flagler deputies are already trained in first-aid and CPR. These units cost $2,100.00 each.
