Worst Case Scenarios: How to Avoid Them

| Articles | August 16, 2014

In case of emergency, the first thing that you should do is tend for yourself and then consider providing first aid to other people around you. It is important for every home to have a first aid kit and emergency supplies to treat injuries sustained during an accident. These supplies can help reduce swelling, bleeding, infections and trauma that occur during an injury.

But what should you include in your first aid kit? You have to have safety pins, bandages, sterile gauze pads, scissors, needle, tweezers, medicine dropper, aspirin, non-prescription drugs, thermometer, and moistened towelettes among others. To store these supplies properly you need to buy a plastic storage container. This container will be the safety box of your emergency supplies so make sure that it is durable and easy to move around. You can also include a flashlight and fresh batteries in the kit. A flashlight can help in detecting foreign bodies in the wound, eyes and mouth and in determining the severity of the wound. Just be sure to check on the batteries every few months.

If you do not want to assemble your own first aid kit you can always purchase it through a variety of medical supply shops. There are quite a number of them in the Internet that offers ready-made first aid kits in different prices depending on the size and want you want included in the kit. Nevertheless, when buying ready-made emergency supplies you have to carefully examine its content. There are some that contains a few bandages and tablets only. This will surely not treat any injury. So don’t be fooled by the quantity. Look for the components that you can use in real life emergencies not what you can buy for a few dollars less. Look also for a kit that is nicely organized. This will enable you to locate supplies readily.

On top of this, buy first aid kits that have guides in it. A kit that does not have one is useless because you don’t even know what to do with it. Make sure also that the kit is from a credible source and it is packaged in a way that it can be easily understood when under stress. And when you are taking trips, make sure that your first aid kit comes along with you. So check you household and make sure that you have a first aid kit in places where accidents are most likely to occur.
