First Aid Kits

Topic Progress:
A first aid kit should contain all of the necessary tools and supplies necessary to provide immediate first aid care. You should have a fully-stocked first aid kit in your home, in your vehicle, and at work. If you’re a person who’s always on the go, you might also want to keep a first aid kit wherever you spent time such as in your camper or boat, or in your outdoor recreational toy (ATV, dirt bike, bicycle, etc.)
The first aid kit should contain bandages, supplies for wound care, medical tools or equipment, and medications (both over-the-counter and prescribed.)
