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
- Cold pack
- Disposable gloves
- Flashlight and extra batteries
- Hand sanitizer
- Plastic bags
Remember, while preparedness and self-reliance are important, call 9-1-1 when there’s a true emergency that requires immediate medical help .
