We have never had red trauma straps. I wondered if the county EMS people might shy away from “blood-colored” straps for PR reasons. I know they are made in red because I have seen them online.
A while ago, two long, narrow straps were left outside our department. I have no idea who left them or what they were for as I had never seen straps like this before. After they were there long enough to gather dirt and be an eyesore, I brought them home and finally had time to include one in a bag. And it is red! It was just long enough to make two small bags. Here they are.
I have told you about RAFT, Resource Area for Teachers. One day, we were there looking around and talked with a man who was there looking for material to sew into bags. At the time, he was sewing bags for homeless people. I gave him straps to use for his project.
I have lately been in contact with Richard again. He is sewing bags for poor Navajos in Ship Rock New Mexico. When he came for pick up several bags of straps, he left a sample of his work as a thank you to me. Here is a picture of the bag he left. I like the way it folds in on itself when you hold it by the handles.
