Emergency First Aid Kit: You Never Know When You’ll Need it!

hiking

It’s true what they say: You never know when you’ll have an emergency happen. Since no one can ever be prepared enough for surprise disasters and hiccups along the way, it’s important that you are aware of any potential dangers and have some pre-planned response for scenarios.

Whether you’re venturing out on a long road trip, taking kids to and from sports practices – work at a construction site or just like to travel and spend time outdoors – having an emergency first aid kit on hand is like an insurance policy that you can withstand injuries or other accidents whenever they happen.

Since you never really know when an emergency is going to happen, it’s not enough to just buy a first aid cabinet and put it in a dedicated location. What if you’re not near that specific location when the problem arises? Emergency first aid kits that you can pack with you to take along are a great solution.

Keeping what’s most important in these kits can vary based on specific situations. Will you be outdoors and exposed to sunlight? Will there be insects? How about a need to protect your hands?

It’s not only about your own protections, but that of others too. Along the way, you may notice someone trip and fall, get a cut or have some other accident. Being able to respond when they were not prepared is important.

If anything this can save valuable time before first responders or medical care is given and sometimes even save a life!

You can buy a prefilled first aid kit with essentials or make on hyper-specific to your needs. Simply use a plastic tackle box, old diaper wipers container or other easy to carry case and fill it with essentials you can grab in a pinch.

Here are some items to consider packing in your emergency first aid kit:

  • Gauze
  • Band-Aids
  • Ointment
  • Candles
  • Water
  • Tweezers
  • Flashlight
