Basic First Aide Kit


sharon-martin-151572When I wrote my original post on how to prepare for a disaster I didn’t know we were going to have two major hurricanes go through only a few weeks later.  I will still be writing posts on emergency kits and the like each month.  I’m not a prepper person, but I believe that we should all have basic supplies in our home in case of emergency. Here is a list that I have put together for a basic first aid kit.  Am I missing anything? Let me know in the comments!

Here are some items in a basic first aid kit.

  1. Sterile Gloves
  2. Cleaning agent for wounds
  3. Antibiotic ointment
  4. Various sized adhesive bandages
  5. Thermometer
  6. Aspirin/pain reliever
  7. Anti-diarrhea medication
  8. Antacid
  9. Laxatives
  10. Tweezers
  11. Scissors
  12. Compress dressings
  13. Adhesive cloth
  14. space blanket
  15. breathing barrier
  16. cold compress
  17. hydro cortisone ointment
  18. rolled bandage
  19. sterile gauze pads
  20. first aid booklet
  21. tape
  22. hydro cortisone ointment
