First Responders Receive Life Saving Equipment

Citgo Refinery recently donated 60 trauma kits to Coastal Bend first responders. The bags contain medical supplies in case an officer is injured while on duty or a citizen is in need of medical attention. Corpus Christi police know all too well how important these bags are. Several years ago, two officers injured during a shooting on the City's south side, used materials in trauma kits on their wounds to control bleeding until paramedics arrived. The Corpus Christi Police and Fire Departments along with the Nueces County Sheriff's Office received Citgo's donation of the lifesaving equipment.
