Dark Angel Medical of Colorado has been in business just since January. If you’re a frequent reader of Kit Up then you’ll have read several articles about their kit in the past, as well as some trauma articles on dealing with critical injuries (remember ‘Fight Like You Bleed?’).
Dark Angel Medical is the passion of Kerry and Lynn Davis, both veterans. Kerry was a flight medic and paramedic in the Air Force for approximately ten years before going to work in the civilian sector, where he’s spent approximately the last decade as a critical care RN in an emergency room (six of those in the Reserves). His wife Lynn was a Communications officer in the Air Force before taking a job as a paramedic in the civilian sector. They run Dark Angel Medical out of their basement in a suburb of Denver.
The couple teach trauma medical courses through Dark Angel and Kerry also teaches a number of courses (including ‘Bullets and Bandages’) for Sig Sauer. They have both left their ‘safe full time’ jobs to try to make Dark Angel Medical a full-time gig. Among their products are the Direct Action Response Kit (one of the Top 25 New Products at SHOT from NRA Life of Duty) and the Pocket DARK, as well as refills and additional medical pieces. The Davis’ design the gear; it’s built and assembled by First Spear and Progressive Medical International (also a veteran owned business).
