When we travel for a weekend outing, a long vacation, or a quick daily trip, we think about all the items we will need to eagerly fill up our bags or suitcase. Our favorite clothes, bathing suit, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, food items, water, etc are carefully planned and packed in our bags. There is one thing that is very important we tend to ignore, first aid medical supplies.
Trust me, I forget it as well. A cut, burn, sting, or worse isn’t something we want to plan for but it definitely happens. How many times have you been somewhere and a minor injury occurs and you think to yourself, “I need to get first aid medical supplies?”
First Aid Kit Supplies List?
Many of us do not know exactly what is in a First Aid Kit. Typical items in a first aid medical supply kit are:
- alcohol wipes
- hydrogen peroxide
- triple antibiotic ointment
- pain reliever
- sterile gauze
- medical tape
- insect bite swaps
- cold compresses
- band aids
These items are wonderful to have on hand if something were to happen.
In the summer we take many outdoor trips to the lake, beach, pool, camping, boating, etc. When we are outside there are many things that can cause a mishap to happen. The ground may be full of thick grass and an object can be hidden. The sand is thick and something sharp can be buried. A boat is rocking and someone falls onto something. So many things can and do happen. If prepared, having first aid medical supplies can reduce any risk of infection and further injury.
How to be Prepared for an Emergency?
First Aid Kits come in all shapes and sizes. It is best to have one in your car at all times and in your home, RV, cabin, vacation home, boat, camper, and anywhere you spend time. Keep the kit located in the same place so everyone knows exactly where to locate it when needed.

How to Prepare For a Natural Disaster
Living along any coastline and close to a beach brings in the threat of dangerous hurricanes. Some of these hurricanes have caused extreme fatalities and major disasters. I live in Texas and this prior year we were engulfed with devastating Hurricane Harvey.
Having a Hurricane Survival Kit is truly beneficial to safety and survival after a traumatic hurricane.
My husband and I were stuck in our home surrounded by water and without electricity for 5 days. By the grace of God, our house stayed dry. Thousands of families ran out of water and food and the necessary daily living items. To this day, families are still displaced and their homes are not even close to being repaired.
Another natural disaster that has devastated parts of the country are Earthquakes. Earthquakes have the same life-altering events as hurricanes but with less warning. I am fortunate that I have not experienced a high caliber earthquake.
Mother Nature can come knocking on our doors at any time. Earthquake Survival Kits will provide you knowing you are safe.
A very scary disaster that can happen at any moment and has already occurred in parts of the U.S. and around the world, is the threat of a terrorist attack. This comes without any warning. Nobody wants to think this type of attack can happen but it definitely can.
When an emergency happens, be sure you and your family are prepared with natural disaster survival kits. Expect that the unexpected can happen. To prepare your family for life’s unanticipated disasters, your family needs an emergency survival kit. These kits are a great investment to your family.
