STOP THE BLEED CLASS September 28th, 2022.

Held at the North Smithfield Town Hall.

 

Thank you to all the North Smithfield Residents who came out Wednesday night to learn how to go from "being a Bi-Stander to a Bi-Doer". A special thank you to the Woonsocket Rotary Club for the purchase of the CAT-1 Tourniquets that were dispersed to the participants of the Stop the Bleed Class upon completion of the class. The class was orchestrated by Brooke Lawrence, Executive Director of DMAT-RIMRC, along with Jim McLeroy, Paramedic, DMAT-RIMRC, Richard Savaria, EMT-C/IC, DMAT-RIMRC, Cheryl Savaria, LPN/EMT, DMAT-RIMRC, and Georgette Gasse, admin. DMAT-RIMRC. The residents were informed on when/why/how to appropriately apply a Tourniquet, pack a wound, and tend to a 'sucking chest wound' out in the community if such a catastrophic event were to take place. Photo's of the event will be posted in next weeks Newsletter. Stay tuned...., stay Healthy, and stay informed. Be a Bi-Doer, not a Bi-Stander in your community!

The House is moving to block a nationwide rail strike that could deal a major blow to the economy. The chamber passed the resolution in a 290-137 vote, sending it to the Senate for consideration ahead of the December 9th strike deadline. President Biden on Monday called on Congress to force a deal through, saying a strike would have disastrous consequences.       Parts of the Southeast are feeling the effects of severe storms and tornadoes that hit the region Tuesday and early Wednesday. At least two people, a woman and child, were killed in Alabama after a tree fell on their mobile home. More than two dozen tornado reports have been made since Tuesday afternoon, including in places like Mississippi and Louisiana.        President Biden is set to greet the Prince and Princess of Wales this week. On Wednesday, the White House announced they'll cross paths during a fundraiser in Boston on Friday. The Royal Couple is visiting to promote their climate change initiative known as The Earthshot Prize.        A group of Republican senators are calling for an end to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for the military. Republican Senators Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, Rick Scott and others said they won't vote for an annual defense spending bill unless there's a vote to end the vaccine mandate. Paul of Kentucky said the policy is forcing servicemembers to choose between their medical autonomy and their career.        The first trailer is being released for the upcoming thriller "Cocaine Bear." The film follows a bear on a murderous rampage after it encounters pounds of cocaine in the wild. The movie is based off a true story, minus the murderous rampage, when a drug smuggler offloaded a duffel bag of the drug in the Georgia wilderness and a bear ingested it resulting in an overdose.        Former Nebraska interim head football coach Mickey Joseph was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of strangulation and third degree domestic assault. He was booked into the Lancaster County Jail after the Lincoln Police Department dispatched officers to a residence for a domestic disturbance call. Joseph was placed on administrative leave by athletic director Trev Alberts following the incident.
