Tips to Packing a First Aid Kit

September 09, 2020

It happens to the best of us; we stumble, bump into things, or find ourselves feeling less than our best. That’s why it’s important to keep a first aid kit handy and stocked with all the things necessary to fixing ourselves up or keeping things clean and contained until we can seek further care. Here are a few tips from the CDC on things to keep in your first aid kit, and even more tips can be found through the link at the bottom of this page!

  • Assorted band-aids and sterile gauze wraps with adhesive tape
  • Sanitizing agents: hand sanitizer and peroxide
  • Tools: thermometer, tweezers, scissors, safety pins, splinting kit
  • Relief aids: aspirin, antihistamines like Benadryl, burn numbing spray, ibuprofen or acetaminophen or naproxen for pain
  • Individual care items: epi pens, personal medical card with allergies and list of medications

While we may not need it every day, it comes in handy to have a well packed first aid kit that’s easily accessible. But, if you do need further care, we are here to help!
