NBC 6 Salutes The Badge by recognizing a local salon which donated their time and profits to help an organization that helps police.
Red 1 Salon teamed up with First Chance, a non-profit which provides free trauma medical kits and offers training for officers on how to use them.
First Chance was started by Jessica Walker. Her police officer husband was shot and seriously injured serving a warrant.
“These kits maybe critical in situations where a person maybe bleeding to death,” said Walker.
NBC 6 has donated several thousand dollars to First Chance each of the past two years at our annual Salute The Badge banquet.
The trauma kits have been used more than 40 times since 2015 to help save lives.
