  • First aid supplies

    After researching different first aid kits, their contents, and their prices, ive decided to build my own. I figure id make one big one to keep in my room for major disasters and another smaller one to carry around with me. But where should i get the supplies for them? Longs? Walmart? Ill need more than just bandaids and alcohol swabs, which is all 90% of the store bought first aid kits carry. Appreciate any help.

    Here are some suggestions: Internet, Google buy online
    Check with medical distributors in your area
    Red Cross in your area sell them also.
    Call local hospital and ask.
    I hope these suggestions help, also check into certification classes at the local YMCA in Basic First Responder certifications.

      Find a nice big $$ one on-line that has an itemized list of the contents... record this list as a base to start from. Then tweak the list based on preferences and info gained from first aid threads here. Once you think you have a good list nailed down, hit Wal-mart for a big portion of the items, as you cross these easy ones off the list, you will automatically have your mental list of the less common things to hunt down...

      Cheaperthandirt.com might have some good kits to look at...

                  You can still get needles, sutures, various gauze and bandages/wraps at vet supply outlets. you need a vet to prescribe/sell Penni or other AB's.
                  Look for sulfa based ABs in M.O. vet supply catalogs
