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.
Problem: Without the ability to treat injuries and sickness you and/or family members can become incapacitated…or worse.
Solution: Acquire enough medical supplies and training to be able to treat minor and intermediate wounds and injuries. Learn how to avoid and treat sickness during emergencies (i.e. proper water sanitation, etc.).
