No one really ever expects to have to need a first aid, but we’re all human and accidents happen. When those accidents happen and you are in need of help, a first aid kit can be a life saver! Here are just a few examples of when a first aid kit can make all the difference:
One of the easiest ways to stay safe on the road is to grab a roadside first aid kit and keep it safe in your trunk. Despite modern improvements, drivers are coping with more battery, flat tire, and key problems than ever before. While most drivers depend on their phone for roadside assistance, it's better to play it safe in case you have a low battery or lose cell service or internet access. Items like flashlights, jumper cables, duct tape, and help signs are good to have, so consider the AAA Road Traveler kit.
You never know how long an extreme weather event will last. Items such as a tent, sleeping bag, body warmers, and emergency ponchos help provide shelter to protect you from wind, sun, rain, snow, and other harsh weather conditions during and emergency survival situation. The new CPR Savers 72-Hour Survival Backpack Kit is the ideal first aid kit for these situations because it offers help in survival, shelter, lighting, and communications.
Safety can never be guaranteed with any physical activity, but there are ways for each player to be prepared. Injuries can be minor--the typical cuts, bruises, and scrapes associated with contact sports. It's a great idea to pack your own sports-minded first aid kit to keep in your car that includes items like band-aids, elastic wraps, athletic tape, gauze pads, hydrogen peroxide, and instant ice packs. A first aid kit like the 71-Piece Sports Kit would be perfect.
