Being a nurse I'm kind of all about first aid. This weekend I updated old first aid kits and made a couple new ones. I have one in each vehicle as well as the horse trailer. The one in the trailer has horse and human supplies :) You wouldn't imagine how much stuff goes into an equine first aid kit!

Here is what is pictured. Cheap little plastic storage box (complete with Star Wars sticker form my son).

 In the box:

Wound Cleanser
 2x2 sterile bandages
3x3 sterile bandages
 3x4 non stick sterile bandages
 Assortment of bandaids
Bug spay
Triple antibiotic ointment
Rubbing Alcohol
Bandage scissors
Rolled gauze
Cold Pack

In the kit but not pictured...

Small flashlight
Solar blanket (for winter emergencies)
After bite cream
Medical bandage tape
Finger splint

While it isn't a stocked ER room I think this is a pretty good kit to handle small emergencies. What do you have in your kits?

Oh yea... We also keep a snack box for those hunger emergencies that arise at the ball field!  :)


  1. I have a tiny kit that I carry in my purse. It has a few vials of saline, bandaids, neosporin, alcohol wipes and a few single packets of tylenol/ibuprofen, etc. IT's just the thing I need when one of my girls scrapes a knee at the park!

  2. I have the same thing in my purse! I have the big kit for all those nights at the ball field and all the other crazy acitivities we do. I did hear a report today that NY health deparment is calling kickball and tag "high risk" activities! Really?! And yet they wonder why childhood obesity is on the rise! Lol

  3. Not in the kit, but in the glove box, I keep a small roll of toilet paper (one that is partly used up, so it will fit in the glove box!) and a small pack of baby wipes. Your kit looks pretty complete to me, especially if you have emergency snacks in it! If you are likely to be stuck somewhere at night, or possibly could be, I'd want a sawdust & beeswax candle in an empty tuna can, too. And lighter.
