Is Your Family First Aid Kit Ready For Summer?

It is March already and despite the snow outside, as hard as it is to believe, summer will soon be upon us.  With it will come the long, lazy days in the garden.  Okay, so not necessarily long and lazy – at least not with our family!

With several young children who are full of energy at the best of times, summertime brings the opportunity to build camps, invent new games, climb, jump and run.  Just what their inner jumping beans need to let off steam!

With six boys all close in age means that there are usually small frequent emergencies to deal with, from scuffed knees, grazed elbows to bug bites and bumps.  I am sure every parent would agree that it is vital to keep a supply of first aid equipment close at hand because, with children, you just don’t know what is around the corner.

I have been having a bit of a time simply trying to get everything together for our forthcoming trip away.  Every time I thought I had everything on my list, there would be something else to add to it.  So discovering the products on offer at First Aid Warehouse has been a great help. They have a range of different kits available so you can prepare according to your family’s needs.

This compact sports first aid kit is ideal for keeping in the car or in the home and has a diverse and useful selection of products for dealing with those everyday cuts, bruises and other minor injuries.

For peace of mind, we prefer to make sure we have a range of products in our medical kits enabling us to deal with almost any emergency.

The Sports 500 Kit, for example, contains:

  • 10 x Alcohol free wipes
  • 1 x Microporous tape
  • 20 x Assorted plasters
  • 4 x Triangular bandages
  • 1 x Cool down spray
  • 6 x Safety pins
  • 1 x 5cm crepe bandage
  • 1 x Tuffcut scissors
  • 1 x Emergency foil blanket
  • 3 x Pairs of vinyl gloves
  • 2 x Eye pad dressings
  • 1 x Instant ice pack
  • 2 x Finger dressings
  • 3 x Low-adherent dressings 7.5cm
  • 3 x Low-adherent dressings 5cm
  • 1 x Heat spray
  • 1 x First aid guidance leaflet
  • 2 x Triangular bandages
  • 4 x Medium dressings
  • 2 x Large dressing

Emergencies are not pleasant at the best of times, but with young children even the most minor incidences are often unavoidable.  Keeping a fully stocked kit means we have at least some reassurance that we are a little prepared.  As far as I’m concerned, I’d rather have something and not need it than need something and not have it!
