Where there’s the patter of little feet, there’s the need for a First Aid Kit.
A complete and up-to-date First Aid Kit is crucial in every home, particularly where kids are around and accidents are plentiful. It’s important to be ready to tackle any first aid emergency with the right supplies.
Here’s a list of recommended First Aid Essentials for Kids:
First Aid Handy Hints Booklet: Clear instructions for common first aid emergencies
Antiseptic Wipes: Clean and disinfect minor wounds before dressing
Dressings, Adhesive Strips and Bandages: Protect cuts, grazes and sprains of all shapes and sizes
Gauze Swabs: Control bleeding and clean wounds
Tape paper and Safety Pins: Secure bandages and dressings
Burnaid Gel: Rapidly cools burns, relieves pain and prevents further tissue damage
Eyewash Saline Solution: Provides safe irrigation of an irritated eye
Instant Ice Pack: Relieves pain and reduces swelling from sprains, strains, toothaches and insect bites
Scissors: Cut down bandages and gauze to size
Forceps: Safely handle contaminated waste
Thermal Blanket: Retains body heat in case of shock or extreme cold
Eye Pad: Protects and aids the healing of an eye injury
Splinter Probes: Remove foreign bodies from under the skin to avoid infection
Resuscitation Face Shield: Provides hygienic administration of CPR
Gloves: Protect from cross-contamination and infection
Once your First Aid Kit is fully stocked, keep it in an easy-to-carry, durable container where everyone at home can reach it. We also advise keeping a First Aid Kit in your car for unexpected roadside emergencies.
Be sure to annually check your First Aid Kit for used or expired products, and always remember to call Triple Zero if the emergency is life threatening.
