Kelly forwards ‘Stop the Bleed’ resolution

Friday, May 27, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

In response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Council Member Mackenzie Kelly has proposed a resolution seeking to support Uvalde officials and exploring “future ways to improve morale among city of Austin public safety employees.” The resolution asks the city manager to expand the Stop the Bleed program to primary and secondary area schools. “In times such as these I firmly believe that it is important to publicly voice our support for those that are placed in harm’s way by selflessly protecting our communities,” Kelly wrote on the City Council Message Board. “I would like to invite each of you as a co-sponsor on this resolution to show our unified support for our public safety professionals in times of great tragedy and loss.” As of 7 p.m. on Thursday, no City Council member had yet responded to the post.
