Titusville Police Department’s Officers received 50 Individual First Aid Kits (IFAK), thanks to the generosity and proactive efforts of Parrish Medical Center, Team Health Emergency Physicians and the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation. 

This unified medical front supports the importance of early aggressive prehospital first aid in response to a life-threatening trauma. The collaboration realizes that these kits provided to first responding officers will save lives. In fact, multiple lives have been saved since this the program began in 2015 !!


This unique partnership provides IFAK’s to new officers as well as, replenish IFAK’s that have already been used during life-saving incidents., The kits, valued at approximately $6500 in total, include a tactical tourniquet and a myriad of life-saving tools and equipment.

“These invaluable kits allow our officers to perform initial lifesaving measures when time is most critical”, said Titusville Police Department Training Coordinator Christina Schmidt. “Thanks to the funding provided by the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation, more lives can be saved every year”, added Schmidt.
