The Roxbury, New Jersey, school district is the first in the nation to outfit every school with trauma kits thanks to a partnership between the Roxbury Township Police Department and the Roxbury Rotary Club.
Their kit of choice, the Tramedicube™, is located in every public and private school as well as the library and rec center. These kits give each school the ability to treat a full range of traumatic injuries including massive bleeding, blocked airways, chest wounds, and more.
The former police chief of Roxbury, James Simonetti, emphasized that these kits are not just for serious situations such as active shooters but for general preparedness: “… be it an accident or something else, we want to be prepared.”
“We’re fortunate in Morris County that every police officer is outfitted with a trauma kit, and I felt that the schools needed them too.”

Roxbury Township Police carry trauma kits from Tactical Medical Solutions®. Tramedicubes™ contain some of the same products but they are adapted for civilian use.
The Tramedicubes™ are designed to be used by all people, including the untrained bystander, so that anyone can provide immediate care.
Statistics have shown that traumatic incidents in schools are increasing annually, and these kits empower faculty, staff, and students to become the immediate first responders.
“It’s a self-contained kit that comes with both the product and the training on how to use it, and that’s key,” said former Chief Simonetti.
Simple and color-coded instructions guide the user to the proper equipment to treat the most serious injuries first. In addition, training videos detail how to use the kit components, so when the time comes, bystanders are already equipped with the knowledge to respond.
The Tramedicube™ contains the essential Tramedic™ sub kits needed to respond to a broad range of medical emergencies.
The individual sub kits are easily identifiable by number, color code, text, or icons. The kits are also bilingual with English text prominently displayed and supported by Spanish sub-titles.
The center of the Tramedic™ system is the removable decision tree or flowchart that is attached to the center of the soft case.
This chart is your guide to prioritizing treatments and selecting which kit to use in a given situation. The back side of the chart, printed with high visibility yellow and the word casualty, can be used as a signal or marker to guide rescue personnel to those in the greatest need of help.
All sub kits contain individual instructions for the included components both by text and graphics. The instructions also prioritize the component to be used first in the kit, and each component is marked to clearly link to the corresponding instruction.
By bringing the instructions down to the simplest level possible, the number of potential effective responders is greatly increased.
With the Tramedicube™, you will receive 50 licenses to our training portal, where videos detail the components of each sub kit.
Designed to be viewed by users of all ages, these videos are not only informative and educational, but they could save a life. Access to the training site allows facility training managers to assign videos to personnel and staff as well as track their progress.
Another way we work to make your life easier is by providing kit tracking for product expiration dates. We maintain a log of the components used to pack your individual kit. As long as the original seal is on the kit, we can track and notify you of any product that is approaching expiration and needs to be replaced.
It’s more than first aid. It’s the Tramedic™ Difference.
