During the month of March Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco’s Stop the Bleed – Life Station Campaign was the featured charitable giving organization at the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office. Stop the Bleed – Life Station Campaign is an effort to install Life Stations in schools throughout Pasco County. The Life Stations will provide needed lifesaving materials in the event school-related violence occurs.
“The Pasco Sheriff’s Office is grateful to our Tax Collector, Mike Fasano, and his team for raising funds for the Stop the Bleed program, “ comments Sheriff Chris Nocco. “Sadly, active shooters and other critical incidents are occurring more often in our society. When moments matter to save a life, these kits will provide victims the critical time needed to get to the hospital. These kits will be going into our high schools to further protect our children.”
“School-related violence is unfortunately a reality that cannot be ignored,” states Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “Our office was honored to lend our support to Sheriff Chris Nocco and his fine staff to help raise funds that will, eventually, allow for the installation of Life Stations in Pasco County schools. Thank you to every member of our community who donated to this worthy cause. Hopefully the Lifestations will never be needed, but if they are they may just save the life of a child, teacher or parent.”
