Automobile First Aid Kit

I am huge on safety and preparedness. I figure that if I am prepared, two things can happen -- 1) nothing, which is good; or 2) something, which I will be prepared for. Either way, I will be able to handle it. That is the whole purpose of preparedness -- hoping for the best but being ready for the worst. 

I take this to heart and even make sure I am prepared as I am driving about town or on trips. I have coast guard rations in my vehicle, along with a water bottle, and jumper cables, and emergency roadside kit, and now I have an automobile first aid kit. This automobile first aid kit includes a lot of items that you *might* need if you get in an accident and are far away from help (like if you are camping or hiking).

There are tons of items included in this kit, as you can see from the picture. Bandages, sterilized gauze pads, ace wraps, instant ice pack, tweezers, poncho, an emergency mylar blanket, light stick, scissors, CPR kit, a whistle, a compass, alcohol wipes, and so on. 

It is lightweight and easy to carry, it is small (about 6 x 8 inches max) and can easily fit in a backpack for hiking, or in your camping tote. It also fits in your glove compartment easily as well. It comes in a zippered nylon bag with clear pockets that easily identify the items inside.

All the items in it are what people use the most. All these supplies -- over 70 items -- basic first aid and more. It is the perfect combination of medical first aid supplies and emergency preparedness items.
