one thing a lot of people don't think about for first aid kit as well as wallet is a card showing all prescription medications, dosage and times of day taken. And keep updated. as well as a list of medical conditions. Keep a copy in various locations

My dad was head of the local "Civil Defense" back in the fifties. We use to hold emergency drills in our back yard. As a child I thought it funny watching all the "wounded" be attended. Dad carried an emergency first aid kit every where he went and helped I don't know how many people because he had it. Spouse thought I was looney tunes when he saw me make up our kit. Can't wait to show him this forum! This is an excellent topic!!

I carry a basic kit, Ice packs rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide at minimum. I also keep an ANC fire extinguisher outside when using my grill and anytime we use a fire ring and I have no young kids but better safe then hurt

This is an excellent thread. As a career firefighter/paramedic with experience ranging from the backwoods of West Virginia to the urban streets of Northern Virginia, I applaud the information people are sharing. Everytime I thought I would add something, I would find it in the list (maxi-pads, baby diapers, super glue, etc...). The only two things I might add would be 8-10' of duct tape (perhaps wrapped around the popsicle sticks) and some type of impervious material (small sheet of plastic wrap or a ziploc freezer bag). The duct tape sticks well to most anything and has countless uses and the plastic sheet would be useful for someone who may have suffered a penetrating wound to the neck or torso area. Lastly, a heavy-duty garbage bag is useful for many things (keep dry, warmth).

Not only keep a well stocked first-aid kit but make sure everyone knows where it is kept! I have informed all family members where it is and also have firstaid decal on cabinet where it is.

EMT here: I love the SAM splint. Lightweight and you can get a cheap off brand on Amazon.

30 Dollar Epi-Pencil

With Epipens out of reach for "non-allergic" camper first aid kits, here is a DIY Epi-"pencil" that will fill that hole in your emergency kit.

For about 30 bucks, you can make a functional equivalent.

Find a few friends who want their own Epi-pencils and have a party making them.

This thread has been active for a long time, from way back in the earliest days of FRF. Almost 10 years...

Since then I have found two kits from the American Red Cross that are pretty good.

This one I keep in my truck, it fits in a rear door pocket nicely:

I have two of these, one in the camper and one at home:

Both are roomy enough to add your own stuff, like tick tools, snake bite kits, splints, cold packs and so on. So if you are in a rush and need to get a basic kit going, try these Red Cross kits.
