Our 51/2'' EMT trauma shears are now only $2.95. They are great for use as bandage scissors and rescue shears. Made with durable stainless steel blades, one of them is a serrated blade. A must have for serious rescuers, CERT teams, first aid kits and any earthquake disaster kit. These are great utility shears. They can cut aluminum, canvas, carpet, leather linoleum, rubber, and many other materials. One blade serrated for firm grip. Big, comfortable ambidextrous plastic handles.
As a professional firefighter and EMT for over 30 years, I have lost my fair share of scissors. In an emergency, these shears are the tool of choice. Quick and safe removal of the victims clothing to assess their injuries is a must in the field. You need shears that can cut through all types of fabric and leather and zippers without cutting the patient.
When removing shoes, get the tip of your shears under the laces and cut the shoe laces down the middle or even quicker, just cut the instep. When removing shirts, always cut the collar down first to avoid cutting up towards the face and neck.
