Being prepared helps families alleviate fears and reduce potential losses related to disasters. In the event of emergencies or disasters, injured people need to receive help within the first hour of the incident. Often family members and co-workers are the first responders. First-aid kits are a necessity for attending to victims and should be kept in homes, vehicles, schools and workplaces. 

You may purchase first-aid kits or customize your own kits for families, schools and businesses. Some kits are designed for specific activities, such as hiking, camping or boating.

Make sure your kits have all the supplies you may need. Include personal items, such as mediciations and emergency phone numbers, or other items your health care provider may suggest. Check kits regularly. Make sure the flashlight batteries work. Check expiration dates and replace any unused or out-of-date contents.

Basic first-aid kits may include these supplies, though variations can easily be made to meet  the specific needs of families, schools and workplaces.
