Bleed Control Kits Pilot Launch in Birmingham Read More >> Control The Bleed Pilot launched, June 4th 2019

The BBC and news media attend a Press conference to learn about the Pilot scheme which equips city centre businesses and late night venues with Control The Bleed Kits.

Nicci Collins, Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership Manager stated that they have a limited number of kits for their pilot, so are initially concentrating on the Night Time Economy locations in the city centre e.g. pubs and clubs. They have support from the appropriate BIDs (Business Improvement Districts) and have offers from venues who are willing to locate the kits on their premises. They are also exploring the possibility of installing bleed control kits on police vehicles used within the city centre and private hire cabs, again a first for the city. Initially they have purchased 60 kits but are hopeful that most venues will buy these and possibly donate extra kits to be used in the community.

They have had several offers already and so should be able to install more than 60 kits. Each kit costs £80 plus VAT. Anyone can purchase a kit via www.controlthebleed.org.uk Free training will be provided to the city centre project by the suppliers.
