First Aid Kits
Safety is important. Be prepared and carry a first aid kit with you.
About Our Kit
How We Customized It
We always carry a first aid kit with us on all of our family adventures because accidents will happen. Many people customize their kits depending on where they are going, what they are doing, and their level of first aid skills. As a result, you will find all kinds of recommendations for what should be in your kit.
GET A KIT and TAKE IT WITH YOU!
At the very least, put several band-aids in a Ziploc bag and carry them in your pocket.
Some friends of ours wanted to learn about camping and creating their own family adventures so they joined us for an entire day of fun. On our short hike their daughter slipped and fell, cutting her knee on a rock about a half mile from our car. Her dad (a paramedic) began to assess her and realized he needed a few first aid supplies to help her otherwise he was going to have to carry her back to the car. My husband pulled out our first aid kit from our hiking bag and in a short while, their daughter was running along the trail again. A delayed adventure, not a ruined one!
