We thank you for coming to our site and taking the first vital step towards saving someone's life.
The Daniel Baird Foundation has been set up after our brother and son Daniel Baird of just 26 years of age was fatally stabbed in the early hours of 8th July 2017, outside The Forge Tavern, Digbeth in Birmingham following a night out with friends. There was no first aid or bleeding control kit available. Dan died shortly after arriving at hospital due to catastrophic bleeding.
Dan was out with his friends having a good time. His life should not have ended in this tragic way. Had there been a public accessible bleeding control pack available Dan may still be with us. We believe that having publicly accessible bleeding control packs in all major shopping centers, pubs/clubs, public transport stations, all public buildings is a priority given the current risk from extremists, terrorists and the increasing rise in knife and violent crime. Our aim is to reduce and stop knife crime as no family should have to feel this pain.
Our charitable aims to raise awareness of knife and violent crime and the importance of having publicly accessible bleeding control packs available. Our first step will be to purchase several public access bleeding control packs which will be presented to various businesses and public buildings, also smaller versions for taxi cabs. We will also campaign for first aid training to incorporate catastrophic bleeding control. Additionally we will liaise with other organizations to ensure advanced first aid is on curriculum in all educational establishments.
The Basic version of the NAR Public Access Bleeding Control Pack provides 8 complete kits containing life saving bleeding control equipment such as tourniquets, pressure dressings and gauze bandages and puts them into the hands of the public to help control bleeding and save lives.
The kit fits neatly into a vehicle glove compartment, under a seat, overhead storage, desk drawer or discreetly inside a defibrillator cabinet. We have set up a JustGiving Donation page. These packs save lives, please donate what you can as every little bit helps!
