What Supplies Should Be In Your First Aid Kit?

When looking to purchase or update your first aid kit there are basic essential medical supplies that you should definitely have at your disposal for minor cuts, scrapes, and injuries. More advanced supplies may require some level training and should only be used by people with the proper knowledge and experience.

BASIC SUPPLIES

The basics include items such as bandages of various sizes and uses, gauze pads and rolls, adhesive tape, scissors, medical grade gloves, thermometer, and alcohol pads. Items that help with cuts and scrapes.

MEDICATIONS

Your kit should have medications that help alleviate headaches, pain from an injury, allergic reactions, bug bite and stings, and antibiotic ointments for helping treat wounds.

SPRAINS & FRACTURES

Some of these more advanced medical supplies such as suture kits, tourniquets, chest seals, and CPR shields are great to have as part of your kit, but some of them may require extra knowledge and training on how to properly use them.

GOOD TO HAVE

Even the most comprehensive first aid kit will not have everything you could need or want. That is why we suggest that you personalize the kit and add to it. Having items like personal medications, a flashlight, paracord, survival blankets, can all come in handy.

Where & When You Should Have A First Aid Kit?

Accidents and injuries can and do happen when we least expect them to. Having a comprehensive first aid kit handy can make all of the difference. When considering what to include in your first aid kit, you should take into account what types of activities you will be doing.

Keeping a well-rounded and stocked kit at home is always a good idea for cuts, scrapes, and sprains that often happen at or around your home.

There are specialty kits designed specifically for certain activities like sporting events, boating, hiking, and even the range.

So the real answer is, it depends on what you like to do in life. Having a kit at home, one in the car, and one you take on adventures is a great place to start.
