Being able to treat minor injuries at home, the office, or at school is extremely important – fast care usually means that the injury heals quickly without complications. One of the best ways to assure that you always have the first aid supplies you need at hand is by keeping one of our kits in the house, car, and workplace. Depending on your needs, you can choose a very basic kit, or you might prefer one that can handle more serious trauma wounds such as freely bleeding cuts or burns. These kits have been assembled with the input of specialists who understand the most needed items for competent first aid care.
Small first aid kits, such as the 45 Piece First Aid Kit in Travel Pouch or the Mayday 107 Piece First Aid Kit as perfect for keeping in the car in case of small accidents on the road. These kits are also great for tucking into a child’s school backpack, and are good for keeping in a desk drawer at the office.
When you are looking for a kit that will be able to treat a wider variety and perhaps more serious injuries, you might find that the First Aid Trauma Responder Kit or the Rescue One – First Aid Kit will be useful. Both kits offer a slightly higher treatment level than that offered by the more basic kits, and depending on the contents, will be able to treat burns, serious bleeding, sprains and strains, and provide assistance with CPR.
If you enjoy outings in the wilderness, you should never venture forth without adequate first aid supplies. Falls and other mishaps can cause injuries far from immediate medical assistance, so having the means on hand to treat these is important. A very important item you might want to take along on your next hike or camping trip is the EVAC Roll Stretcher Kit. This fabric stretcher is light in weight, rolls up to save space, and can support up to 250 pounds. This stretcher is great for rescue teams, CERTs, or anyone who wants to be able to evacuate party members if necessary.
