US Army North American Rescue Warrior Aid & Litter Kit (WALK)


Warrior Aid & Litter Kit (WALK),

Item#: 80-0059
NSN 6545-01-532-4962 (DUC)

Item#: 80-0089
NSN : 6545-01-587-1199 (Coyote)










The US Army selected the WALK® as its official vehicle life-saving kit.



















Benefit Against the Threat

Attacks against lightly armored vehicles continue to be a source of injury and death to our Soldiers. They must rely on equipment carried on the vehicles and individuals to provide care and conduct evacuation. The current vehicle first aid kit cannot meet the minimum requirements for life saving. A need exists for a WALK that can be carried on every vehicle traveling in a convoy or on a combat patrol within the current tactical theaters.

Product Description


The WALK will be stowed onboard vehicles to be used by the first responder. The WALK will not replace the Improved First Aid Kit (IFAK) or the Combat Life Saver Bag, but will be complimentary to both and will contain a foldable litter and provide the tools to treat and overcome the three most common causes of preventable combat deaths on the battlefield (hemorrhaging, tension pneumothorax, and inadequate airway).


Contents

The exact contents of the Warrior Aid and Litter Kit (WALK) will vary depending on the date of assembly of the kit and the source of supply. The items in this table have been included in WALK, but a single kit will not contain all of these items since some items are alternatives for or supersede others.
