First Aid Kits come in all shapes and sizes. You can buy a fully stocked kit or build your own. While a first aid kit will come in handy during a disaster, you may find yourself using it for those non-disaster type events too. Within your first aid kit you can include personal medications and emergency phone numbers. Keep in mind your first aid kit should be stocked with a good amount of materials that match the amount of people within your household.

 

 Here’s a list of items to consider including in your First Aid Kit:

  • Absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)             - Adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)

  • Adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)                     - Antibiotic ointment packets
