My Brother's Six (MB6), a local non-profit organization, donated 20 single-use tourniquets this weekend to law enforcement officers serving in Oregon County.

“We are really excited about providing this life-saving tool to the officers that serve our area,” founder Greg Martin said.

The organization purchased enough tourniquets to outfit officers and ensure backups are on hand. Those receiving the gift were the Oregon County Sheriff’s Office, Thayer Police Department, and Alton Police Department.

Officers who will be carrying the tourniquets have received training in their use through accredited training providers, including My Brother's Six, according to Martin.

The organization recently presented CAT tourniquets to these departments, which are military-tested and approved for emergency response, Martin said in a release about the donation.

“The availability of a tourniquet can make a significant difference in a life or death situation,” Martin said in the release.

"If an officer is to be shot or injured in an extremity they could apply the tourniquet to themselves. This would allow them time for help to arrive. Without the tourniquet they could bleed to death prior to help arriving. It can also be used to respond to traumatic accidents involving a member of the community with a severely injured extremity."

My Brother's Six is a non-profit organization founded by Greg Martin, CEO of Shield Solutions, that provides no cost training to law enforcement officers in our region. This training includes combat medicine and firearms training taught at Shield's training facility in Douglas County by an all volunteer instructor cadre.
