Road Side Medical Care Kit
Emergencies can arise in the most unlikely places – even while on the road. Leaving home means venturing away from the security and the supplies within it. While no one plans to get sick or hurt on the road, accidents can and do happen.
Preparedness websites and organizations alike have suggested carrying emergency supplies for the car, as well as a medical care kit. When a person plans for an emergency, they think of the worst case scenario and plans accordingly for the scenarios. Planning for these situations ahead of time can add convenience and relief to your life.
Pre-assembled first aid kits can be purchased in stores, or you can make your own vehicle kit at a fraction of the cost. If you plan to make your own first aid kit, keep some considerations in mind:
- Keep in mind the the unique needs of your family.
- If you have children, make sure you have child appropriate medications.
- If a family member has severe allergies or illnesses such as diabetes, keep necessary supplies on hand such as an EpiPen or insulin close by.
- Have emergency phonenumbers written down in case you need to call from a pay phone.
