Occasionally we hear back from customers who share stories about how their trauma kit or IFAK helped save a life, and today was one of those days!
In November 2018, Peter Velez purchased one of our LXMB45-SKM Stocked Modular Trauma & Bleeding First Responder Kits. He has carried it in his vehicle every day since. See Peter’s email below:
My name is Peter Velez, I am a customer of yours and just wanted to express my profound thanks for the workmanship, attention to detail, and overall quality of your products.
I purchased the: Lightning X Stocked Modular Trauma & Bleeding First Aid Responder Medical Backpack + Kit – TAN, back in November of 2018 and it has ridden in my vehicle each & every day since.
As a former United States Army Combat Medic, I like to always carry medical gear with me in the case of an emergency. Fortunately, when a medical emergency involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle occurred in front of me as I was on my way home from a long evening out in September of 2021, I was prepared to respond thanks to your medical gear.
The incident occurred on September 26, 2021 and thanks to your products, a potentially tragic incident was averted and critical lifesaving care was administered to the individual, saving his life and allowing EMS services to transport him to a local hospital.
I have attached some photos from the incident as well as a letter written by the police officer who assisted me that night in treating the patient in case you would like to read about it further.
I just wanted to take the time out to sincerely thank Lightning X for making top-quality products which do not compromise on value while also not breaking the bank! I love your company’s products and have purchased several bags and items for friends and family members. Without your company, this life could not have been saved and for that I sincerely thank the entire Lightning X team.
