EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

An Evansville police officer stepped in to help a man mauled by a dog. He used a relatively new piece of equipment, a combat tourniquet to control severe bleeding. 

The Evansville Police Department now has 300 tourniquets that cost $25 a piece.

But those thousands of dollars didn't come from the department's budget, instead the EPD Foundation footed the bill.

One of those tourniquets was used just a few days ago, last weekend, on West Delaware Street.

"When we got up there, the guy was laying in the yard..," Officer Kevin Mason says.

23-year Evansville police veteran Kevin Mason says that man in the yard had been attacked by a dog in the 1300 block of West Delaware.

"He had several wounds to his arm which was bleeding profusely. His chest had a large wound and his leg had a large wound," Officer Mason says.

So, Officer Mason made a quick decision. He got out his combat action tourniquet and put it on the bleeding victim.More

I've recently become a board member and secretary of the Coalition for Tactical Medicine (CTM). We'll be providing information on tactical EMS training and offering scholarships when this is all put together. I'd love to know what things you would consider for a minimal level of competency. Let me know what you think of the site. http://www.coalitiontacticalmedicine.org
