First Aid Kit Contents – Summer break is coming!

first aid kit

 

 

Are you, or your kids, counting down the days until school is out? My kids are counting down the days until school is out and summer break begins. They are beyond excited to spend more time outdoors and to do lots of fun summer things. Summer break brings so many fun things but it also brings some not so fun things. Summer break seems to bring more bumps, bruises, cuts, scrapes and other accidents than we see during the rest of the year. Because of all of these things, it is a really good idea to include assembling or purchasing a first aid kit in your summer break preparations.

 

First aid kits come in many shapes and sizes, it is easy to buy or make a first aid kit to fit your needs. You can purchase a first aid kit from your local discount store or your local drug store may sell them. You can also make your own first aid kit. Some first aid kits are designed for specific activities or locations like camping, home or car. There are so many different first aid kits but all have one basic thing in common – if we don’t check the contents the kit could be useless in some first aid emergencies.

 

Years ago I bought a small first aid kit for my car and tossed it under a seat. I thought very little about it and knew I was good because there was a first aid kit in the car. A couple years later I looked at it and realized many of the contents were expired and some things were damaged. A first aid kit is only complete if you check the contents to make sure it is in date and contains all of the needed items. If you buy one or make one, make sure it has the basic items you will need. Need to get your kit ready before school gets out? Wondering where to start? The Red Cross recommends that all first aid kits for a family of four include the following:

 

2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)

25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)

1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)

5 antibiotic ointment packets (approximately 1 gram)

5 antiseptic wipe packets

2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)

1 blanket (space blanket)

1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)

1 instant cold compress

2 pair of nonlatex gloves (size: large)

2 hydrocortisone ointment packets (approximately 1 gram each)

Scissors

1 roller bandage (3 inches wide)

1 roller bandage (4 inches wide)

5 sterile gauze pads (3 x 3 inches)

5 sterile gauze pads (4 x 4 inches)

Oral thermoameter (non-mercury/nonglass)

2 triangular bandages

Tweezers

First aid instruction booklet
