First Aid Kits

A first aid kit should be able to help you respond to common accidents and emergencies such as falls, allergies, animal bites and more.  Not only should one keep a first aid kit for home use but one should have an extra one for their car as well.

First aid kits come in various configurations handle everything from basic first aid situations to specialized EMT rescue trauma kits.  If one of the kits does not provide what you need you should be able to build one yourself.  Although in case instead of starting from scratch we will highly recommend that you buy a base kit and then add specialized supplies as needed later on.

So what should be in a most basic of first aid kits?
