It is important to set up a family first aid kit and to place it in a location where everyone in your household has access to it.  I set mine up in a surplus military tool bag and wrote the words first aid kit on it in permanent marker.  I keep it in a location where everyone in the household has access to it and I stock it with the following items.

  • Dental Tools
  • Pill Cutter
  • Nail clippers, scissors, tweezers, tape
  • Lots of band aids
  • Gauze pads
  • Battle Dressings
  • Cold and Flu Medicine
  • Acetominiphin, Ibuprofin
  • Anti Radiation Pills
  • Anti Itch Cream
  • Burn Cream
  • Cough Lozenges
  • Antiseptic Wound Cleanser
  • Premoistened Cleaning Cloths

I will also be adding digital thermometers, a first aid manual and disposable medical gloves.  What other First Aid related items do the rest of you carry in your family first aid kits as I’m looking to add additional supplies?

      Thanks for the info. I will look into adding a scalpel and suture kit and study up on the laymens use of those. Good idea on the road flare as well.
