DIY: Car First Aid Kit

Yikes! Yesterday was the last day of school, which means the Summer Travel Season is about to begin! I have family visiting this summer and we're all planning a little road trip. With 4 adults and 2 small children, one of us is bound to need a Band-Aid at some point, so I thought it might be a good time to put together a First Aid Kit for the car. Sure I could buy a pre-made kit, but they're so expensive and they don't have everything that I want to have available when I need it.

I already had a LOT of the items on hand {from my years of being a home health aide} and the rest I picked up at the dollar store and Walmart. The biggest challenge was finding some sort of carrier that could keep everything organized in the car.

I love how much storage room this little tackle bag has! The front pocket has four compartment boxes that hold bandages, gauze pads, cloth tape, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment, hydrocortisone ointment, an oral thermometer, tweezers and scissors. I even had enough room to include personal hygiene products in case my husband gets stuck in the snow again! The four side pockets hold our space blanket, breathing barrier, cold compress, hand warmers and non-latex gloves. While the large top storage compartment is perfect for keeping small bottles of rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, calamine lotion, witch hazel, and sunblock. Now all of my first aid supplies are stored in one compact bag and everything is organized and easily accessible in an emergency!

Before you hit the road this summer, why not print this checklist and make your very own first aid kit for your car!

  1. I found mine @ Bi-Mart, but they also sell them on and I think has a few Flambeau bags as well.

  2. This is a great article and very informative. This looks like a real heavy duty first aid kit with a lot of important items. I all the adhesive bandages is a great idea since you never know when someone would need that. I have a pretty good size first aid kit with a lot of important items but I always make sure I have a Duoderm because they are great for wounds and apply pressure to sore areas. They are very heavy duty products and but really get the job done.

  3. Having a first aid kit on your car is a really good idea, Bekah. When you’re on a road trip, especially with children tagging along, injuries and scratches are always bound to happen. Your list can be really useful. I think everyone who has a car should have first aid kits.

  20. 5 Points to Keep In Mind Before Enrolling For a first aid course in Brisbane
    A benign scenario can become a health crisis in a matter of moments. First aid contains the measures that you want to choose to attend a medical crisis. The kind of first aid to be supplied is dependent upon how intense the problem is. Injuries and sudden illnesses might lead to the demand for first aid.

    First aid courses teach you methods as straightforward as employing a bandage to a injured knee and as complicated as using and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to someone whose heart has stopped.

    It's our responsibility to assist people in need and also taking a class in first aid is a step towards this. Before you register yourself at a first aid course there aren't many things you need to remember.

    • Thoroughly undergo all of the topics which will be dealt with from the first aid program. There are several distinct forms of first aid classes but should majorly contain topics like security and security, injury management, patient investigation, injury recognition and crisis identification.

    It's useless to perform a class which won't give you appropriate certificate as a trained first aid professional.

    • be sure that you look at all of the available times and programs of this program. Some first aid classes just allow classroom coaching and if you're interested in distance classes you might be disappointed afterwards.

    • Understand the detailed breakdown of their charges for the very first aid lessons available. Make sure you pick the one which is quite economical and offers you the ideal course.

    • The major point to remember is your proficiency and instruction of the school. If the course that's educated and professional teachers and coaches it will make a major difference at the level and caliber of their very first aid program.

    Certified first aid classes are provided in schools, hospitals and local government agencies. You could even enroll in an internet first aid program. A fantastic first aid course can instruct somebody to take care of situations as little as slight wounds and accidents and as large as heart attacks and strokes which might happen in the home, work or on the street. A first aid trained practitioner can take care of any type of health emergency no matter the state of the individual. A first aid course gives you the necessary knowledge, ability and confidence to deal with any emergency situation in the best way possible and so save a individual's life..
