What to Do with Your Kit

When you first get your kit we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the kit’s contents. To encourage this, we ask that you take a moment to short & organize the medication pack found inside. There is a convenient reference card that lists the medication name, what it’s used for, and the corresponding pouch that it should reside in. BTW, the backside of that reference card also has all of the questions that an Emergency Provider will ask in the case of an emergency.

The kit also includes a Quick Release Mounting System allowing you to mount your First Aid Kit in an easy to access location.

Go prepared for anything and stay safe out there!
