A Basic First Aid Kit

First Aid

If your kids are anything like mine, they will be get quite a few minor bumps and scrapes along the way. Therefore it is useful to have a first aid kit in your house so that you can deal with these minot injuries.

A first aid kit should just contain the basic equipment needed to manage minor injuries - you don't need to have a whole A&E department!

As part of your First Aid Kit it is useful to have a good first aid manual, however it is important to read this before you have an emergency, as you don’t want to be trying to find the page for how to deal with a deep leg gash while blood is spurting!

Better still, you could take a basic first aid course such as the type organised by the Red Cross or St John Ambulance.

You can buy a ready-made first aid kit at Amazon, The Red Cross, St. John Ambulance or at larger branches of Boots and even at many DIY shops.

However they do not always contain absolutely everything on his list, so you may wish to add items of your own. It is also important to check that items such as creams and tablets are in date, and replace them as necessary.
