The risk of injury or sickness is always present in any emergency, disaster, or grid-down situation. Think of any emergency…now, think of all the ways you can get injured or sick during that emergency. The outcome to your family can be devastating without the ability to properly care for minor and intermediate injuries and sickness. A simple infected cut on your finger could lead to sepsis and that can lead to death if not prevent and/or treated.
I have resurrected the articles where I listed the different kinds of medical/FirstAid kits, the mission for each, and their contents. It is well worth the time to read…and act on.
