Franklin County Commissioners have approved a 350 thousand dollar contract to purchase kits to help civilians handle injuries from mass shootings or other violent attacks.  

The county plans to purchase up to one thousand trauma bags to distribute to emergency responders. The costs are covered by a state grant. The kits provide basic supplies that can be used to stop bleeding in mass casualties.
