First aid supplies

Prepare for first aid supplies
We have to realize the importance of having first aid supplies kit in our home or car. Companies should be equipped their facility with basic first aid supplies kit which located somewhere in the facility.

If the company building is large, the first aid supplies kits are located in each department of the large building. We have to take the very best measures to assure our safety. Accidents can be happened each time when we least expect them, so we need to be prepared.

We can purchase a first aid kit that is complete with all the basic first aid supplies or a larger first aid kit with many more first aid supplies. Some of the basic first aid supplies are:

·        Band aids
·        Adhesive tape
·        Ace bandage
·        Gauze
·        Hydrocortisone cream
·        Benadryl
·        Antiseptic cream or spray
·        Antibiotic cream and burn cream
·        Antacid
·        Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen
·        Blood clot spray
·        Emergency Numbers
·        Number of Poison Control Center
·        Scissors and Tweezers
·        Thermometer
·        Calamine Lotion
·        Antiseptic wipes
·        Instant Cold Pack

We can look for most of these basic first aid supplies when we buy a ready made first aid kit. These basic first aid supplies may not all be the same with all first aid kits, but they are similar.

Some larger first aid kits have more than just the basic first aid supplies, however, we can find that some of the supplies are seldom used. We also may discover that some supplies get used more often, so we need to stock more of these first aid supplies.

We should also carry a first aid kit with at least the basic first aid supplies in body or car when we are hiking, traveling, biking or camping. Any way, any time we are away from home or car for an extended period of time, warrants having a first aid kit.
