DYI: First Aid Emergency Kit Contents List

First Aid Emergency Kit

An adequate first-aid medicine list is a must. You must be ready for cuts, bruises, and other severe and commonplace problems. Never skip the first aid that you plan on using.

First Aid Kit Checklist

Bandages and Splints:

These are to secure cuts, broken bones, and other shared concerns. Items include Sterile bandages, Adhesive tape, Folding splints, Sterile gauze pads, and Shaped bandages – circular and triangular bandages can cover joints; Safety pins in several sizes.

Treatment Items:

There are several good non-prescription items that you can get for first aid kit items:

  • Antacids
  • Pain relievers
  • Laxatives
  • Eyewash
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Hydrogen peroxide or any other antiseptic
  • Activated charcoal
  • Anti-diarrhea medicine

Be aware of expiration dates. While it is true that these are safe to use if they are fully sealed in sterile containers or packages, there is a potential for some medicines to lose their potency if they are not used within a particular period. Also, you must have a sufficient supply of any medicine you and your loved ones take.

Tools:

Have a good supply of these:

  • Tweezers
  • Scissors
  • Thermometer
  • Latex gloves
  • Cleaning soaps
  • Antiseptic spray, which may help sterilize different tools
  • Razor blades
  • Wooden application sticks
  • Petroleum jelly or any other safe-to-use lubricant

I am by no means an expert in every aspect of this stuff. I plan to learn, and when possible, enlist the help of experts in various fields to come together and offer their knowledge. In a few years, I dream that this site will be a virtual survival encyclopedia and allow a total novice to come on here and be supplied with everything they need to prepare for anything.
