BALLSTON SPA — The Ballston Spa Community Emergency Corporation recently donated Bleeding Control Kits to the Ballston Spa Central School District for use in the district’s six buildings and also provided a kit for the St. Mary’s School.  The kits are to be utilized during emergencies before first responders are able to reach the scene.

“The partnership between the District, the Community Emergency Corporation, and the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office continues to benefit our students and staff in our focus on maintaining a safe, secure, and welcoming environment in our schools. While we hope that our student support network, practice drills, “See Something Say Something” approach, and our overall planning will help us avoid traumatic situations, building a skill set in our students and providing our staff with the tools to react quickly to such a situation gives us that much more confidence in our readiness if one were to occur. Simply put, today’s donation can help save lives,” said Ballston Spa CSD Superintendent Ken Slentz.

The donation is a continuation of their commitment to school safety, which has also included adding STOP THE BLEED® instruction to Physical Education classes and the school district’s nursing team. 

Ballston Spa Middle and High School Resource Officer Deputy Jonathan Becker coordinated the donation along with the school district’s Health Leader, Colleen Ferlo and Athletic Director, David Sunkes.
