The Caddo Sheriff’s Office has received 15 Belt Trauma Kits, thanks to the efforts of Kellie Abbott and her non-profit organization Blue Forever.

Each kit contains gloves, a CPR Shield, SWAT-T pressure tourniquet and QuikClot Combat Gauze. These items are used to effectively stop bleeding and have saved many lives on the battlefield.

Kellie, who’s now in college, began her non-profit when she was still in high school and has donated more than 300 kits to nine area law enforcement agencies. Her father Wayne is a Caddo deputy. Kellie has raised more than $23,000 to purchase the Belt Trama Kits.

Kellie was a guest on the KEEL Morning Show with Robert J. Wright and Erin McCarty back in early May. Listen to that interview here:
