Bleed Box installed at Spencer Park

Off the Streets NN CIC have installed their third Bleed Box in Rushden, this time in Spencer Park, located on the back of the pavilion.

Rushden Town Council has been working with 'Off The Streets NN' - a local anti-knife crime group, to help find suitable locations for several bleed control kits that can be used to provide emergency aid to treat patients injured in a serious violent crime.

This particular box has been funded by Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire Police, Stephen Mold.

The boxes contain gloves, bandages and a tourniquet and can only be opened with a code given by emergency services when someone phones 999.A video of how to use the kit is available here:

Rushden Bleed Box Locations:

★Rushden High Street - Walkway between Kabab Express and Rushden Podiatry that leads to Orchard Place Carpark.

★Hall Park - Located outside the accessible toilets, next door to Rushden Museum.

★Spencer Park - Located on the back of the pavilion.
