Check the DAN website for some pretty good first aid kits packed in pelican cases.

I pretty much agree with everything Randy had to say. I went through an EMT class years ago and then decided that was not for me on a professional level.

That's interesting. I took a basic CPR class and they made it sound super useful for the average person to save a life.

This isn't my area of expertise. But, I thought the most common successful use of CPR was for people drowning in swimming pools.

anyone have knowledge of old epi pens? our son has a mild peanut allergy, and every year we have to buy new ones because they expire (and his school is anal about expiration dates). Not knocking the system here, but the reality is he'll likely never need it- after his second handful of peanut m&m's his tongue gets a little itchy... nbd and he knows the feeling and when to stop.

but curious if the old ones would still be good, or useful to anyone here, etc. don't think we have any right now but i could easily save one next time. they're expensive!!

So, it took a little longer than I had planned but I finally have the new med kit installed in the truck. It's my first Springtail product and I'm pretty impressed. The rack itself is very sturdy and mounted without issue and the bag is bombproof.

  • Gloves
  • CPR pocket mask
  • Trauma shears
  • Spyderco Assist knife
  • Velcro tourniquet (adult & child)
  • Triangular bandage
  • Towelettes
  • Antispetic wash
  • SAM splint
  • Steri strips
  • Butterfly strips
  • Band aids
  • 2x2 gauze pads
  • Gauze roll
  • Eye wash
  • Glutose oral gel
  • Neosporin
  • Tape
  • Flexwrap
  • Immodium
  • Tylenol

Looks like a good, basic kit. You can prolly add some sort of eye pro. A bit of body fluid on exposed skin is no big deal, but you don't want it in your eye. I don't know what your background/training is, but you should really find a trauma surgeon and ask what he/she thinks about quickclot.

Where'd you get all the doodads to put in the bag? We had to deal with moving a person with a torn AC out of the woods the other day and I was wishing we had some heavy duty pain killers to give him. maybe they are no-no's.

Having a suture kit and knowing how to tie an insturment knot has saved me a couple trips to the ER. Of Course doing this on someone else outside of a zombie apocalypse isn't going to happen.
