A First-aid Kit for Your Family

You’ll feel better if you have a first-aid kit on hand to deal with emergencies. Buy a ready-made kit (be sure any flashlight bulbs and batteries in the kit are working), or put one together that includes:

  • Activated charcoal (use only if instructed by a poison control center)
  • Antiseptic ointment
  • Bandages, gauze pads and tape
  • Blanket
  • Cold pack
  • Disposable gloves
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Plastic bags
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers

Remember, while preparedness and self-reliance are important, call 9-1-1 when there’s a true emergency that requires immediate medical help .
