The Mahwah Police Department will now be a bit more prepared when responding to emergencies, thanks to a tourniquet donation from Valley Hospital.

The hospital recently presented 116 CAT tourniquets to the PD, which are military-tested and approved for emergency response, Valley said in a release about the donation.

“The availability of a tourniquet can make a significant difference in a life or death situation,” Valley said in the release.

According to Mahwah Police Chief Jim Batelli, the donations will be a big help to the department.

“The Mahwah Police Department has enjoyed a long-standing professional relationship Valley Hospital,” Batelli said.

“The donation of these tourniquets demonstrate their continued commitment to providing law enforcement with the necessary tools to provide life-saving equipment for both our own officers and the community they serve.”

Valley is donating nearly 1,000 tourniquets to about 500 police officers in 16 area towns.
