Interested in how you guys do it that already have these.
I guess I kinda default back to how the military does it, as that's where most of my medical training has come from: Your IFAK is for YOU; you treat casualties with THEIR IFAK and an aid bag. That's what I think of with this: if I'm hurt, this is something I can use to do self-aid and get back in the fight, or at least keep myself from bleeding out until I can get help. With my position, I can't see us being sent to assist on a mass shooting or something. For a mass-casualty scenario inside the fence, we have dedicated mass-casualty aid kits staged at various places around the joint.
