People can get hurt at home, on the job, in the car, at the park, or anywhere.
Do you have the proper materials to stop a serious bleed?
Do you have the right thing to give a person who has been stung by a bee or wasp?
What do you do if someone gets a foreign object in their eye?
If you don’t have the answer to these questions then you probably need to get a good first aid kit. First aid kits today contain a variety of different items for all types of injuries. Many of the larger kits will contain CPR masks, eye wash, instant cold packs, as well as large gauze pads for deep cuts in addition to the basic creams and bandages.
There are even smaller bag-type first aid kits that can easily be kept on the handles of a bicycle for the average tumble.
In a car accident, one of the most common causes of death is anoxia, which is the lack of oxygen supply. If you have a proper first aid kit with an instruction booklet on how to use the CPR equipment, you can save lives.
Whether you are in an area prone to earthquakes or tornados, first aid kits are essential for every walk of life and for every location in the world.
