First aid


First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by a non-expert person to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.

First aid kits

· sharp scissors

· safety pins

· first aid manual

· antiseptic wipes

· alcohol wipes

· thermometer

· tweezers

· calamine lotion

· plastic non-latex gloves (at least 2 pairs)

After you have done keeping it….NEXT is??

· Read the entire first-aid manual so you'll understand how to use the contents of your kits. (If your kids are old enough to understand, review the manuals with them.)

· Store first-aid kits in places that are out of children's reach but easily accessible for adults.

· Check the kits regularly. Replace missing items or medicines that may have expired.

· Check the flashlight batteries to make sure they work.
