Make A First Aid Kit and What Should Be Included

Being prepared entails having the necessary materials on hand in the event of an emergency or tragedy. Keep your supplies in a portable emergency preparedness kit that you may use at home or bring with you if you need to leave.

A well-stocked first aid pack is a must-have. To be ready for an emergency:

  • Keep a first-aid kit at your home and in your vehicle.

  • Carry a first-aid kit or know where you may get one.

  • Find out where the first aid kits are at your workplace.

First-aid kits come in a variety of designs and sizes. They might be available at your local pharmacy. You can also design your own. Some kits are tailored to hobbies such as hiking, camping, and boating.
