Since 1991 our company has been answering the question, ...
"What should I have in my First Aid Kit?"
Be it a family, a small Cub Scout pack, a church group traveling to Nepal, weekend boat trip or setting up 100s of emergency first aid stations in disaster shelters, the people know and trust the first aid advice, supplies and full blown systems they receive from SafetyStore.com.
You see, unlike so many companies that sell first aid kits based on something the "Marketing Department" made up at a good profit margin, one of our Founders has been doing, teaching and consulting on first aid in real-world conditions and prehospital care for most of his life. He is one of the few people that has worked on and supervised first aid stations for disasters, and even an outdoor event with 1 million people with hundreds of injured. Our kits are designed by real-world events and the skill levels of the people using them - not marketing departments.
A first aid kit is not about how pretty the Box is or how cool it looks, (you would not pick a fire extinguisher by how pretty the logo is - right?) Your selection of first aid supplies is like picking a multi-function tool kit for providing temporary minor first aid care up to saving a life in a true emergency.
Your supplies should be based the following:
Upon what will be excepted to take care of? (Minor cuts and scraps? white water rafting?, major accidents with critical injuries etc.)
What the skill level of the user is? (No training? basic first aid? a Medic? retired hospital skills? specialized pre-hospital care etc.?)
In an emergency, how long will it take for advanced help to arrive and transport? (5 minutes by ambulance or a disaster where it may take days to get to medical help?)
The number of injured people from a single event the emergency kit will have to support.
You can quickly see that, you many need a range or first aid kits to meet your lifestyle. Home, car, office, school, Church, RV, boat, luggage, family emergency supplies etc. all should be configured differently because they may meet different injuries in an emergency.
