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

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.

Have a good supply of these:
