Building Your First Aid Kit

Sometimes we stumble, bump into things, or find ourselves feeling less than our best without any given warning. Keeping a first aid kit handy and stocked can be a big help when we either need to care of ourselves or need to contain and sterilize something prior to seeking professional care. Here are a few tips from the CDC on things to keep in your first aid kit, and even more tips can be found through the link at the bottom of this page!

  • Several sizes and styles of band-aids and sterile gauze wraps to wrap with adhesive tape
  • hand sanitizer, alcohol pads, peroxide for sanitizing
  • thermometer, tweezers, scissors, safety pins, splinting kit
  • aspirin, antihistamines like Benadryl, burn numbing spray, ibuprofen or acetaminophen or naproxen for pain
  • Individual care items: epi-pens, personal medical cards with allergies and list of medications/conditions
