Allen County commissioners Tuesday morning gave whole-hearted approval to participation in “Stop the Bleed,” a Homeland Security program to prepare schools, businesses and citizens to deal with consequences of incidents involving injuries.

Angie Murphy, 911 emergency services director, said 300 kits containing bandages and other things needed to deal with injuries and otherwise comfort the wounded would be placed in every classroom in Allen County, including its public schools and the community college.

The kits and needed training will be provided through a $15,000 gift from Black and McDonald, an international company involved in construction of the EDP Renewables wind farm in northeast Allen County.
